Course Description

This one year program is designed to develop the skills of cultural innovators and critically reflective leaders in government, business, international aid, development and education.

You will design, research and complete a scholarly thesis and undertake advanced course work that provides a firmer grounding in the field and in broader research methods.

Building on the capabilities you acquired at undergraduate degree level, this program will enhance your sense of professional identity and widen your learning horizons through exposure to research practice.

Many graduates continue on to develop an academic research career though further Master and PhD studies. Employers value an honours degree because it demonstrates higher-order research, analysis and writing skills.
