AL400 Supervised Honours Research
Pre-requisite units: Students must meet the minimum entry requirements for the Honours program as listed in the Schools of Arts and Sciences School regulations.
An Honours degree in the School of Arts and Sciences is both personally enriching and intellectually stimulating. It is also vital for the professional development of students seeking a career that requires knowledge of and/or skills in research practice. Taken as an additional year to the Bachelor Degree, the Honours program includes this full-year unit in which students undertake a major research project with supervision by an academic member of staff. The thesis, at its submission, should be of a publishable standard and demonstrate a student's capacity to complete an original and independent research project. Students will normally undertake an Honours thesis in the discipline area in which they majored, but may also consider undertaking an interdisciplinary based project where appropriate.
