A candidate for the degree must pursue either a single course of study in one honours discipline, or a joint course of study in two honours disciplines.
The disciplines which may be studied as single honours courses are those listed in the schedule which follows. Unless exempted by the Faculty, a candidate may not enrol in the Honours course in a discipline listed unless the corresponding prerequisite requirements have been obtained.
Joint honours courses consist of such combinations of the disciplines listed in the schedule as Faculty may from time to time approve. A candidate may not enrol in a joint honours course unless permitted to do so by the Faculty on the recommendation of the heads of the two Schools concerned. Candidates must either have passed the prerequisite units prescribed in the schedule for both the proposed disciplines or have otherwise satisfied the heads of the two Schools that they are sufficiently qualified to undertake the joint course.
Candidates undertake a program comprising a number of coursework units and a research thesis. Candidates should consult individual discipline entries for full details.
