Asian Studies

Honours

About this honours pathway

The fourth year honours program in Asian Studies consists of two seminars and an 18,000-20,000 word thesis on a topic in their area of interest.

As with the undergraduate Asian Studies major, all units and the thesis will be in English. However, we encourage students with Asian-language proficiency to utilise sources in that language for their thesis research.

Students intending to complete Honours must have a major in Asian Studies with an average of 70% or above, including ASNS3690 Approaches to Research in Asian Studies, or equivalent subject if you are entering honours from another university.

The course information on this website applies only to future students. Current students should refer to faculty handbooks for current or past course information.

To help you understand common terms that we use at the University, we offer an online glossary.
