Science Honours

Geology and Geophysics

Both Semester One (February) and Semester Two (July) commencement is offered. Information sessions about Geology and Geophysics Honours are held for interested third year students during Second Semester. Students contemplating Honours in their fourth year should consider possible thesis topics and discuss these with potential staff supervisors.

Entry into fourth year Honours will require completion of a major in Geology and Geophysics and a satisfactory WAM. For students in degree programs administered by the Faculty of Science, this is defined as a minimum SciWAM of 65. For students in other degree programs, this is defined as a Credit average. In some years, when the number of applicants exceeds the availability of resources (e.g. availability of supervisors, laboratory space), offers will be made according to academic merit. Students will be notified in January of their formal acceptance into the Honours program.

Honours students are required to undertake formal coursework during their first semester and to participate in seminars throughout the year as arranged. They will be required to study original problems, working as appropriate in the field, the laboratory, libraries, and in some instances in conjunction with other university or government departments. A thesis of not more than 20,000 words needs to be submitted at the conclusion of the Honours program.
