An honours degree is a one-year program that builds upon undergraduate study by introducing the challenge of an extended research project. There are many reasons we encourage graduates to apply for an honours year. You might want to build the necessary foundations for postgraduate research at masters or doctorate levels. You could be seeking answers to economics questions no one else has asked. Perhaps you’re pursuing advanced skills for specialist positions in economics, including in government and business.


During the Honours year you'll write a thesis and undertake coursework. In Semester 1 there are three core coursework courses in advanced level Macroeconomics, Microeconomics and Econometrics. You'll also choose one Level IV elective. In Semester 2 you'll choose one more Level IV elective and complete your thesis. Throughout the year you'll also attend Honours workshops.
