The University reserves the right to amend or remove courses and unit availabilities, as appropriate.

In Australia and around the world, employers are increasingly seeing graduates who can speak and write clearly; who are computer literate and understand how to use technology; who know about other countries, cultures and societies; who can solve problems creatively; and who have developed that flexibility of thought which technical and vocational training rarely encourages. Graduates with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree find jobs in, for example: advertising, journalism, radio and television; arts administration, heritage and curatorial positions; diplomacy, interpreting and tourism; management, marketing and administration; politics, the public service, the police force and the armed forces; research and publishing; social welfare and community work, or go onto academic careers.

Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts with Honours:

  • must have qualified for admission to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, or another approved Bachelor degree, in this University or another approved tertiary institution;
  • if a candidate from another approved tertiary institution, must have qualified for admission to a fourth year honours course in the proposed program of study or a cognate program;
  • are required by Faculty to have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.0 or better in the intermediate and advanced level units forming a major in that program. Currently, the GPA is calculated on the basis of a HD=7, DN=6, CR=5, PP=4; without any failure in the units that makes up that GPA, for the units at intermediate and advanced level in the proposed program or otherwise approved by the Discipline head;
  • if undertaking a combined honours program, should qualify for entry in both programs to be studied;
  • should consult the following schedule for full details of program offerings as some programs prescribe additional units and a standard in the major higher than the Faculty minimum GPA for entry to their honours program.
     
    Exemptions regarding entry requirements may be made at the discretion of the Discipline head. 

    Admission in semester 2 is possible in some programs. Contact the relevant school for information (or Arts Student Central:  03 6226 7814 / arts.faculty@utas.edu.au)

Credit Transfer and Articulation

Students who have successfully completed the Bachelor of Arts with Honours with a program of study that included a 50% thesis/dissertation may apply for entry to a higher degree (Masters or PhD) in accordance with policies governing candidature for such admission.

Students who complete one semester of study in Honours but are unable to continue their study may graduate with a Graduate Certificate in Arts (Specialisation) degree, or may apply at a future date to continue study in the relevant full fee paying Graduate Diploma degree (subject to availability) offered by the Faculty of Arts.  Where this is the case the students must submit their application for admission and for credit to the University.

A student admitted to and not qualified for R4A in 2014 or earlier, and who enrolled in Professional Social Science stream or the Professional Humanities stream, are permitted to auto-transfer to R4C from 2015 with advanced standing, on request.
