Why enrol for the degree with Honours?

The purpose of an Honours degree is to enable students of high calibre to expand their studies by undertaking serious research and further coursework in a chosen field of study for an additional year of full-time study or part-time equivalent.

The School of Philosophy at the ANU is one of the top philosophy departments in the world, and the Honours degree gives students the chance to work closely with some of the leading figures in their fields, and to be part of a vibrant community of intellectual inquiry. 

The Honours degree provides students with the opportunity to refine their analytical skills and research techniques while significantly expanding employment and study options. A bachelor degree with Honours is both a prestigious qualification in its own right and also the most effective means of qualifying for higher degree work at Masters and PhD level.
