An Honours degree gives you an advanced education and better preparation for your future career. The main difference between a BA and a BA Honours is the inclusion of a strong research component, which is undertaken in an additional year of study. From a BA Honours degree, it is then possible to continue on to a one-year, thesis-only Masters in the discipline.
On completion of a 3-year Bachelor of Arts degree (majoring in Communication Studies, or in Film and Media Studies), you will undertake a 1-year postgraduate Honours degree, majoring in Communication Studies or Film and Media Studies.
It is also possible to take Media, Film and Communication studies in combination with another subject for the BA(Hons). In this case the programme of study must be negotiated between the student and the two departments concerned.
