Begin your research journey in commerce.

Accounting graduates with advanced skills in problem solving, critical analysis and communication are sought after by the Big 4 accounting firms (KPMG, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Ernst & Young and Deloitte). USC's Commerce Honours program is designed to enhance your skills in these key areas, and increase your career opportunities.

This program gives you the opportunity to research an area you’re passionate about. You’ll build your research skills as you design and conduct a thesis study to contribute to commerce research, with the support of a supervisor with relevant research interests and expertise in your chosen area of study.

You'll learn to critically review relevant published literature and undertake useful and meaningful research. You'll also develop your presentation skills and deliver at least two lectures on your research progress.

Join our research student community and attend thesis seminars and discussion groups with fellow research students. At the end of your honours program, continue your research with further postgraduate study or a higher research degree.
