Health and Society Honours Information 2019

An Honours year is more than just research. It is a way to expand your career possibilities, building on the foundations of your undergraduate degree. You will acquire additional skills in critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and independence, which are all highly valued by employers.

For Social Science and Public Health students, Honours is an additional year of full-time study at the end of your undergraduate degree. For Social Work students, Honours is embedded in your final year. The Honours program is based on a research project, there are no formal subjects, with enrolment intakes in both Autumn and Spring sessions.

Your Honours year can be a pathway to further study or a PhD – but it can also create new career opportunities.
