Description

Honours is a prestigious program comprising a fourth year of coursework and research after the completion of a Bachelor of Social and Community Welfare. Students choose a topic and undertake research working with a carefully selected supervisor who provides individual guidance and academic counselling.

Objectives

Upon successful completion of the honours program, students will have extended their undergraduate knowledge in a specific area of social and community welfare through in-depth research and built upon their skills in the areas of research, analysis, writing and other forms of communication.

Entry requirements

Students must have:

  • completed a degree, with a major (48 points or the equivalent) in the intended honours discipline
  • obtained at least a distinction average (70 per cent) in the honours discipline(s) to the value of 24 points at second and third year level, of which at least 18 points must be at third year level.

Contact the relevant school for any additional or special requirements.

Students qualified to enter an honours program must normally do so within five years of the date on which they completed their undergraduate studies.

Structure

This course consists of 48 points of study, including a thesis. Studies may be taken on a full-time or part-time basis, and students undertaking honours by off-campus learning are strongly advised to enrol on a part-time basis.

Requirements

Contact the honours coordinator from the relevant school for details of discipline-specific requirements.
