The Asia-Pacific Security program provides specialist training in the international, internal, and transnational security challenges currently facing this important region.  The Asia-Pacific Security Honours program offers high-calibre students the chance to deepen their skills through independent study of a topic of their choosing relating to Asia-Pacific Security.   The Honours year also provides an opportunity for students to bridge the gap between their undergraduate degree and a higher research degree and/or professional employment.  Honours students will have access to the ANU's wealth of Asia-Pacific Security expertise and to the extensive holdings of the ANU and the National libraries. Students will have expert supervisory guidance and will share their experiences with other Honours students in the College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP). As a member of the ANU research community, students will be in touch with the latest thinking expressed in the ANU’s frequent seminars, special lectures and conferences on Asia and the Pacific.
