BSocSc (Hons) in Government & International Studies

Honours Project

The Honours Project constitutes a very significant part of the Department. Students are expected to engage themselves in a single, 9-10 month long, independent research activity and to spend about 6-9 hours each week on the Project throughout this period.


The topics of the Honours Project should be within the general area of the student's chosen area of study.


Each student will be assigned a Chief Adviser, who will be responsible for monitoring the student's progress on the Honours Project.


The normal scheduled interaction between each student and his or her Chief Adviser may vary according to the Department, the student and the nature of the topic selected. This interaction may take the form of an individual or small group tutorial.
