Why study the Bachelor of Social Science (Honours)?

The Bachelor of Social Science with Honours is a single year of full-time (or part time equivalent) advanced level study plus applied research in the behavioural and social sciences. Students are eligible to undertake Honours if they have completed a Bachelor of Social Science degree or its equivalent with an appropriate level of achievement.
The honours program combines a flexible mix of coursework and independent study, during which students prepare and undertake an approved independent social science research project and submit a formal honours thesis. Honours students are encouraged to extend their specialised study in one of the areas of Health and Society, Social and Public Policy, Development or Criminal Justice and can be individually supervised across relevant UQ schools or and Research Centres. An Honours degree in Social Science allows students to develop, extend and consolidate their knowledge and skills in social science theory and research in relation to their specialisation area and is a valuable additional qualification on entering the job market.
