Text-based Negotiated Study HUM418


This unit enables students to develop and refine an individual text-based research topic of their interest, on a project connected to the expertise of a staff member. This is an individual study negotiated with the Honours Coordinator and an academic. Students will meet regularly with an academic expert to develop their approach and complete their written project.
