Note: This is an archived Handbook entry from 2012.
Currently there is no pure honours program in Australian studies. This means that students must combine fourth-year honours in Australian studies with another area of study.
A major in Australian studies, entry to honours in another area of study, and an average grade over the second/third year subjects within the Australian studies major equivalent to at least an H2A (75%), or equivalent.
Honours in Australian Studies:
- is an advanced level of study designed to allow students to specialise their knowledge across one area of study;
- provides students with the scope to refine their analytical skills and research techniques;
- provides the opportunity to specialise with strong foundation for the future progression to higher degree research in Arts at the Masters or PhD level;
improves the scope of employment options and professional advancement.
