Overview:

The prerequisites for entry to fourth-year honours in philosophy are completion of all the requirements for the BA, completion of a major in philosophy and an average grade over the second/third year subjects within the major equivalent to at least an H2A (75%).

Students undertaking pure honours in philosophy must complete:

  • Philosophy Thesis (25 points); and
  • Six honours subjects in philosophy (totalling 75 points).

Students undertaking combined honours in philosophy and another program must complete:

  • Philosophy Thesis (25 points); and
  • Three honours subjects in philosophy (37.5 points)*; and
  • Three honours subjects in the combining discipline (totalling 37.5 points).

* As the honours thesis in philosophy is 25 points (as opposed to the usual 37.5 thesis in other Arts areas) combined honours students taking their thesis in philosophy take three coursework subjects in both philosophy and the combining discipline.

or

  • Honours thesis in the combining discipline (37.5 points); and
  • Two honours subjects in the combining discipline (totalling 25 points); and
  • Three honours subjects in philosophy (37.5 points).
