The Bachelor of Arts (Honours) program provides students with an opportunity to significantly expand their knowledge in an academic area of interest in an additional, challenging year of research-orientated study. In contrast to undergraduate studies, honours studies requires students to draw on a high degree of initiative and self-direction and is therefore ideal for students who relish a greater freedom to pursue their academic interest(s). As a result, the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) qualification denotes strong academic performance and affords students a solid and important foundation for pursuing either postgraduate studies at a Master or Doctorate level or a career path in an area that prizes high-level conceptual, analytical, research and communication skills.
