This course builds on the strength and flexibility of an Arts degree by an embedded Honours year in a unique four-year program. It provides an advanced level of knowledge in a particular disciplinary area, as well as the skills, knowledge and flexibility to pursue new and evolving career paths in a range of organisational settings. Students will gain a sound and broad knowledge of contemporary understandings of social sciences, arts and the humanities and can choose from a wide range of subject areas in their first three years of full-time study. Eligible students will then progress to an Honours year, where they will undertake advanced study in their chosen discipline. Combining coursework with an independent research project, this fourth year of advanced study will enhance future career prospects. It also provides the research training required for entry to masters and doctoral research programs.
