The Bachelor of Early Childhood Education (Honours) offers an opportunity for selected students, who have demonstrated academic merit and an ability to work independently, to undertake a year of honours study beyond the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education (or equivalent).
The honours year is a research-focused course, which extends the completed research work of the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education (or equivalent), and enables students to undertake research training that will equip them to plan, implement and evaluate a rigorous research study at honours level. Students will be able to undertake a substantial and original research project, whilst being under the supervision of an academic with a proven research record. Students will also develop skills and knowledge to identify contemporary issues in early childhood education and care. The honours research units are sequential and specifically designed to enable students to extend their research ability and understanding in the early childhood context, through the advanced research methodology units, literature review critiques, and in the development and presentation of a minor thesis.
