Designed as staged thesis units for the Health and Human Sciences Honours Program. Honours degrees provide an introduction to independent research through supervised research and thesis work. Honours students select their thesis topic in consultation with academic staff member(s) with expertise in an area appropriate to the proposed topic areas
This is one of three units which include:
- Gain ethical approval for the research project
- Develop and complete a piece of theoretically grounded research and scholarship with supervision
- Communicate the outcomes in both verbal and written formats
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
