The one-year Bachelor of Arts with Professional Honours (Specialisation) degree allows students who have a completed undergraduate degree to undertake further study to develop a body of knowledge in a specific context as further preparation to undertake professional work and/or as a pathway for further learning.

Students choose one of three specialisations: Investigative Practice, Public Sector Leadership and Management, and Prosecution Practice.

Limited specialisations are available fully off-campus, other specialisations have units available both on and off-campus for study one year full-time or three years part-time.

Graduates of the degree will have developed advanced knowledge of the underlying principles and concepts in the specialisation in which they enrol, and the ability to apply research principles and methods in their practice.

  • 1 Critically analyse research, policies, and procedures to justify responses to complex problems and management of human and material resources.
  • 2 Design and execute ethical, evidence-based responses to complex problems in collaboration with diverse stakeholders.
  • 3 Evaluate and synthesise theories of ethical leadership and justify evidence-based research and strategies targeting complex problems.
  • 4 Communicate across diverse settings and audiences in clear, coherent, and ethically informed ways.
  • Learn beyond the classroom
