If you are interested in further in-depth research, the Bachelor of Science with Honours gives you the skills to progress to a PhD.

What is it like?

Massey University’s Bachelor of Science with Honours with a major in geography is a prestigious qualification for those that are interested in progressing to further, in-depth research. This postgraduate qualification will also give you a career advantage.

Generally, the course consists of three-quarters taught courses and one quarter supervised research.

  • Are passionate about science
  • Excelled in your undergraduate degree
