Dean's Scholars

Each semester, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences identifies and recognises the top 100 undergraduate students who complete a full-time semester study load comprising at least 6 units of study in Humanities and Social Sciences courses. Eligible students will be notified by the Faculty.

A congratulatory event with guest speakers is held to recognise all Dean’s Scholars, and each student will be given a welcome pack containing:

  • certificate of congratulations from the Executive Dean of the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty;
  • $20 photocopying credit to use at the Social Sciences and Humanities Library;
  • Some additional information and items.

An honour roll listing the current Dean’s Scholars names is published on the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences webpage.
