After graduating with a BA, you can complete a one-year Bachelor of Arts (Honours) as a qualification in its own right. Alternatively, it can be a pathway to a further year of study in a Master of Arts programme.
The BA(Hons) is an opportunity to extend your understanding of an academic area that you already find intellectually rewarding and personally meaningful. There's also the option of pursuing a subject that's different from your undergraduate major so long as you have the required background.
During your honours year, you can deepen your knowledge in small classes with some of New Zealand’s leading scholars. It's a great opportunity to hone skills that will be an advantage in any career.
