Honours subject area

About this honours subject area

The fourth year honours program in Asian Studies consists of two seminars and an 18,000-20,000 word thesis on a topic in their area of interest.

As with the undergraduate Asian Studies major, all units and the thesis will be in English. However, we encourage students with Asian-language proficiency to utilise sources in that language for their thesis research.

Admission to Honours is accomplished via the Bachelor of Advanced Studies or Bachelor of Arts (Honours) and requires the completion of a major in Asian Studies with an average of 70 percent or above. 

Prior to commencing honours, you will need to ensure you have completed all other requirements of the Bachelor of Arts or other bachelor degree, including Open Learning Environment (OLE) units and, where undertaking the Bachelor of Advanced Studies, a second major.
