About this course

Throughout this four year Honours program you will develop valuable logical reasoning, communication and creative thinking skills that can be applied across a range of areas and industries. Our humanities disciplines study society and culture in all its forms, looking for answers to significant and urgent social problems. You'll be part of a small group who'll stay together throughout your four years of study and enjoy a number of extracurricular activities, such as an orientation camp.

During the program, you'll study a core suite of interdisciplinary courses including:

  • Great Works and the Humanities
  • Humanities and the Big Questions
  • Interdisciplinary Thinking

These courses and your majors will expose you to contemporary thinking in the humanities, provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussion and emphasise connections across humanities disciplines.

Graduating with a Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Honours) equips you with professional research and critical thinking skills, which you can apply across a range of areas from analysing the ethics of biotechnology to policy development.
