About

The Bachelor of Economics (Honours) program at the University of Sydney is highly desirable for students seeking employment as professional economists, for students who want to do postgraduate work in economics or for students who simply want to signal relatively high academic achievement. 

Overview

The Bachelor of Economics (Honours) program at the University of Sydney involves a mix of seminars and a thesis. Seminar work is marked by the academic staff member leading the class. In some departments, a second academic staff member will mark work written for seminars. A thesis is read by at least two academics in the field other than the student's supervisor. Examiners write detailed reports on each thesis, which the student receives, and assign a tentative grade. 

If a student wishes to work as a professional economist in industry, finance or the public service, employers may value a level of specialisation that is not provided by a three-year pass degree. Many of those who have graduated with Honours in Economics from the University of Sydney now have top jobs in government institutions like the Departments of Treasury and Finance, the Reserve Bank and the Australian Bureau of Statistics or in private banks or other financial institutions. Many others are academic economists, while some have won fame in the political arena.

Programme Structure

Further course information

  • The final grades for each thesis are decided by the department or program staff collectively. Each department or program ranks all honours candidates based on their thesis and seminar results. These departmental results and nominations for the University Medals are then considered by the Faculty Honours Board, which includes the Honours Coordinators from every department in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
