This unit aims to develop students' research and writing skills in the Humanities to advanced levels. The specific focus of the unit will be on research methodologies, the practices of critical and creative writing and reading, the stages of a research project, and editing.
This is a practical 400-level unit that is designed to build on the research and writing skills that students have developed in undergraduate study. It presents strategies for undertaking an extended piece of writing and focuses on the specific skills required for the Honours thesis.
