Why study the Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Honours)?

The Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Honours) is a rigorous and challenging program for high-achieving students with a keen interest in the humanities. You will engage with the Faculty's leading humanities researchers from your first year of study through a suite of core interdisciplinary courses taken in each year. These courses will expose you to contemporary thinking in the humanities, provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussion and emphasize connections across humanities disciplines.

The program includes an industry internship, and you will complete Honours by the end of the fourth year. The program also provides tailored extracurricular activities including a camp at the beginning of your studies and a conference mid-way through the final year. A Study Abroad option is also available in the second year.

Students applying to change program and/or applying for credit on the basis of previous studies should seek advice from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (hass@uq.edu.au). Please note that due to the staged introduction of courses, it may take longer than anticipated for students with credit to complete program requirements.
