About the course
After completion of the three-year degree program, students may undertake a fourth year of full-time study (or two years part-time) in Art History, English, History, Philosophy, Psychology or Sociology and graduate with Honours. Like the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) is available in both on campus and by distance education. A mid-year intake is also available.
The Honours program is available to applicants who have been awarded or who are eligible to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts from CSU and, in certain circumstances, to applicants who have a comparable degree from CSU or another institution.
Applicants will normally be required to have a major in their proposed Honours disciplinary area and to have attained grades of credit or better in the second and third level subjects of the major (or have what is deemed to be the equivalent from another institution).
Students qualified to enter the Honours program should consider its advantages, particularly the development of higher level analytical skills and enhanced expertise in research and communication. Completion of an Honours degree is also a prerequisite for admission to a postgraduate research degree.

"When I first commenced my Honours course it was purely for personal interest. It was through the encouragement of lecturers that I started doing additional research and submitting articles for publication. I now have a book being published next month. For that encouragement, I want to offer my sincere thanks. My years spent at CSU were the most intellectually rewarding of my tertiary education, and for that I also thank CSU."
