What is the BTh Hons?

The Honours degree programme is primarily a self-study course designed to stimulate independent research and critical reflection culminating in the submission of a compulsory mini-dissertation in a chosen field of study. Each module comprises reading and written assignments, some of which will be presented by students for critical discussion during seminar sessions. The role of the lecturer is primarily to manage the learning process.

The cost of the programme in 2024 is R35,400-00 for full time students  [30 credits x R1,180.00].
