- About Deakin
The Bachelor of Arts (Honours) program will provide intellectual stimulation, academic achievement and personal enrichment. You will be given the opportunity to undertake a substantial and original research project whilst being under the supervision of an academic with a proven research record. The skills acquired will enhance your future career prospects in a broad range of occupations in both private and public sectors, giving you an edge, compared with a straight undergraduate pass degree.
You will undertake study at a higher level than your undergraduate degree both in your honours coursework units and when you carry out research for your thesis. The thesis allows you to focus on an area of particular interest to you, and provides the opportunity to make a contribution to knowledge and wider debates in your discipline. The honours program is made up of eight credit points, four credit points of coursework units, and four credit points of thesis.
In order to be considered for admission to an honours degree, applicants must have completed the requirements the Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree or equivalent, and have results that indicate they are capable of undertaking an honours program in their undergraduate major sequence.
