The Bachelor of Arts (Honours) is a fourth-year program that often serves as a prelude to a higher degree in research or advanced professional practice in careers that entail complex research work. With half the program dedicated to a thesis-based experience of independent research conducted professionally, the program will prepare individuals for professional or research work in the disciplinary field of their preference by providing training in theory, methodology and epistemology. Successful completion of this program will give you the foundation, knowledge and skills to:

  • Develop skills in research and thesis writing;
  • Pursue scholarly interests in an extended, specialised research project;
  • Explore a range of subjects, by seminar and independent research.

    • Policy officer
    Honours graduates are highly valued for research work (academic and professional), and are especially prepared for a higher degree by research such as a PhD.

Undergraduate students are assessed competitively on the basis of Australian Year 12, or equivalent overseas school qualifications. Students with post-school qualifications (eg diplomas, advanced diplomas) may be considered for admission with advanced standing or credit (recognition of prior learning). The amount of advanced standing will not normally exceed half of the Federation University Australia program concerned, and must be formally assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Applicants must meet the minimum English Language Requirements for entry into a Federation University Australia program. The English Language Requirement for general programs, such as business, IT and general science, is Academic IELTS Overall score of 6.0, with no band less than 6.0, or equivalent.
