Bachelor of Marine Science (Honours)
Students who have fulfilled the requirements of a Bachelor
of Marine Science, and achieved the required academic standard,
may undertake an Honours degree – a year of research
training in the discipline.
The honours degree provides you with the first real opportunity
to undertake research on a topic of your interest.
The honours year is particularly important as it represents
a gateway to future research opportunities, both in the form
of higher research degrees and as a career in research, or
other vocations that require advanced analytical and research
Entry Requirements / Assumed Knowledge
Students may apply to enrol in an Honours degree after the
requirements of the pass degree have been fulfilled, normally
at the prescribed academic standard. This standard is usually
an average of at least credit level for the 300-level subjects
in the major study. Admission to Honours is by recommendation
of the relevant Head of the Academic Unit and approval by
the Dean or Associate Dean of the Faculty, and acceptance
by an academic supervisor in the discipline.
By arrangement with the academic units involved, it is possible
to undertake Joint Honours, a research thesis spanning two
Students proceeding directly from a 3-year degree to Honours
do not graduate until after they have completed Honours. However,
it is possible to graduate with a Pass Degree and then decide
to undertake Honours at a later date, either at this University
or at another University. Graduates from other Universities
may also apply to undertake Honours at the University of Wollongong.
To graduate with a Bachelor of Marine Science Honours degree,
candidates undertake a Marine Science research thesis together
with any other required assignments and seminars.
Students enrol in the appropriate 400-level Honours subject,
