Note:

To enrol in this unit, students must meet honours/postgraduate course entry requirements (for example completion of a 300 credit point undergraduate degree with a major in a relevant discipline). Full-time students will enrol in both HGA408 & HGA409 concurrently in the same semester and part-time students will enrol in HGA408 & HGA409 over two consecutive semesters.

Introduction

The 'thesis' is a 12,000 (max) research project based on the student's own empirical research - this research may be of a qualitative and/or quantitative nature. The supervision of the project involves (where applicable) the gaining of ethics approval, and regular meetings between the student and their primary supervisor, aimed at monitoring the progress of research and thesis preparation.
