The Bachelor of Global Logistics and Maritime Management with Honours program provides outstanding undergraduate students with an extra year of advanced study and research that enhances their knowledge and analytical skills in the field of maritime and logistics management.

The course includes both coursework units and an Honours dissertation. The Honours program is an intensive, one year program that is designed to be challenging and is available to students with a superior performance in their undergraduate program. It will develop your skills further, broaden your knowledge base and enable you to demonstrate your initiative, organisation and motivation to potential employers.

During your undergraduate studies, you have probably discovered that you have an aptitude for some subjects more than others or you may have developed a passion for a particular field in which you want to build your career. Studying Honours allows you to develop these areas further through the dissertation, building on the theories studied in your undergraduate program. The dissertation you prepare will be leading research in your chosen field, ensuring your ideas are at the forefront of current thinking. Such specialist knowledge will enable you to develop your career based on your own particular aptitudes and interests.

Simultaneously you will be demonstrating an ability to undertake advanced units of study. Within the Honours program, you can for example undertake a postgraduate coursework unit of your choice. Other coursework units in the program will build your research skills and understanding of contemporary issues in the maritime and logistics industries. The Honours program is highly regarded as its graduates have specialist knowledge and advanced skills that are sought after by industry.

Career outcomes

The Honours program provides graduating candidates with a competitive advantage when seeking employment. Traditionally, Honours graduates are well regarded by employers because of their high level of academic achievement, well-developed research skills, and proven ability to work independently with minimal direct supervision.
