Arts and Education Honours course programs

Honours is a specialised year of study that allows you to draw together the theory and practical skills gained in previous undergraduate studies and develop an in-depth knowledge of your particular discipline through research and additional course work.

Undertaking honours appealed to me, as I wanted to delve into a specific area to make an original contribution.

I now have a fantastic job, which I love, and I really believe that if it wasn't for honours and the independent research skills which it provided, I would not have gotten this job.

'Honours is excellent as a pathway into further tertiary study. I am now applying for my Masters degree in teaching. Once you have an Honours degree, you have proved yourself to be a member of the academic community, and can re-train in any other field of study.'
