Geography honours

Geography is a diverse and integrative discipline that bridges the natural and social sciences. At Wits, the Honours in the field of Geography is taught by a team of academics who are passionate about their research and the topics they teach.

The Honours Degree in Geography can be undertaken as a BA Hons Geography or a BSc Hons Geography. Both programmes have the same entry requirement, and have identical curricula. You can apply for the BSc Hons or the BA Hons with either a BA or BSc undergraduate. As a result, we encourage applicants to carefully consider which faculty is better suited to their future careers, and apply for either the BA Hons or BSc Hons, but not both. 

If you would like guidance in this selection, you can contact the Geography Honours coordinator, Dr Cletah Shoko on
