Honours Degree

An honours degree requires, over and above the requirements of the general degree, a concentration at an advanced level in an approved field, consisting of a subject or subjects of specialization and/or related subjects, and a high quality of work throughout the program. An honours degree is of distinct advantage if you plan on doing advanced work in your chosen field and also if you have a clear commitment to some special field of study. It may be of particular advantage for students considering graduate studies.

  • anthropology
