The program is designed to develop knowledge and skills in research oriented towards marine and Antarctic science, governance and policy, beyond those gained in undergraduate courses. Students will first complete a literature review, prepare a research plan and proposal, and present an introductory seminar, then conduct an independent research program over a period of about 27 weeks. Finally, students will present a seminar and produce a research thesis.
Enrolment consists of four 25% units as follows: KSM401, KSM402, KSM403 and KSM404.
