Hobart, Launceston, Rozelle - Sydney


This unit is only available for students who have successfully completed CNA450 and CNA418, or are studying CNA418 in the same semester.


This is the second of three linked dissertation units. In this unit, students continue their research under the guidance of a supervisor or supervisors. The type of work undertaken in this unit will reflect the specific research project, but there is an expectation that students will complete their data collection. The work undertaken in CNA446 contributes to the development of the research project that will be reported in the thesis submitted for examination in CNA474: Dissertation Part 3.
