The Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) is an exciting research-focused degree at the ANU. It is an integrated program leading to an Honours award. It is designed for intellectually ambitious students who aspire to study at the highest level. Every student receives intensive individual attention from an academic advisor.
The PhB is flexible in its structure with your program determined each year in collaboration with your academic advisor. One quarter of your studies in the first three years will consist of individually tailored advanced studies courses specifically designed to provide you with a strong base in research. In these courses, you might do a reading course or literature review with an academic. In the fourth year you will undertake an Honours year centred around one Arts discipline.
