The Honours program in History prepares students to undertake advanced research in history, and introduces the techniques, methodologies, writing and communication skills required of the professional researcher.

Students write a thesis of 15,000-20,000 words on a topic of their choice under the direction of a thesis adviser. In addition to the thesis component, students are required to complete four specialist research courses, including one compulsory course in historical theory and/or historiography, and selected courses in the fields of Australian, Asian, American, European, cultural, applied, and community history
