"...tackling difficult issues and finding solutions can only be achieved by studying subjects that allow you to understand who we are as a people."

The Bachelor of Arts with Honours is a specialised one year course that enables you to deepen your knowledge and research skills in a particular field of Humanities, Social Sciences, Creative Arts and Media, or the study of Geography and Environment.

You will apply advanced theory and research methods to social and cultural issues of local and global significance to become an independent, critical and reflective thinker. Working closely with an academic supervisor, you will develop valuable skills in designing and managing independent projects in your area of interest and, by the end of the course, you will be equipped with advanced research, analytical and communication skills that will prepare you for entry to higher degree research, such as a Master of Arts or PhD, or other professional careers.

The Bachelor of Arts with Honours course allows candidates to pursue in-depth study in the program or programs of their choice and at the same time to demonstrate a level of excellence that will allow them to pursue higher degree including research, studies.

By studying a Bachelor of Arts with Honours you will learn to:

  • Articulate underlying principles, concepts and approaches to research in one or more disciplines.
  • Critically evaluate and reflect on a range of social, cultural, political, ethical and environmental issues in local, cross-cultural and global contexts, through synthesis of different perspectives.
  • Communicate disciplinary perspectives and knowledge effectively and ethically, to specialist and non-specialist audiences using written, oral and visual means.
  • Plan and implement a major independent project in the context of scholarship and/or professional practice.
  • Employ self-management, creativity, flexibility, initiative, and resilience in completing course study, showing readiness for further study or work.

Career outcomes

University teaches you to be inquisitive and not accept the answers – I think those are important things to have. The technical skills are critical, but it’s also important to learn about life and how you’re going to survive out there. It’s an opportunity to discover yourself and who you are and what you want to achieve.

Danny Sutton, Arts graduate and CEO of Colony 47

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.
