Economics students with an Honours degree are especially sought after. An honours degree will help boost your prospects of employments as a professional economist, especially since some government agencies only consider Honours graduates or higher.

In your Honours year, most programs will require you to complete a research thesis. This is an exciting opportunity to explore a topic in economics that sparks your interest. It is advisable to discuss ideas with your lecturers during your undergraduate studies, and seek out a supervisor/advisor who specialises in the topic that you’d like to pursue.
Even if it’s too early for you to enrol in an Honours year, it is important to know that many universities require you to undertake prerequisite subjects to be eligible for Honours – find out information about this early on so that you can keep this option open.
