Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Honours)

The University of Queensland

This is a rigorous and challenging program for high-achieving students with a keen interest in the humanities. Students will engage with researchers from their first year of study through a suite of core interdisciplinary courses taken in each year. These courses will expose students to contemporary thinking in the humanities, provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussion and emphasize connections across humanities disciplines. The program includes an industry internship, and students will complete Honours by the end of the fourth year. The program also provides tailored extracurricular activities including a camp at the beginning of the program and a conference mid-way through the final year. A Study Abroad option is also available in the second year.
