Commences independent research and report work. Designed as a two-part sequential thesis unit for the Health and Human Science Honours Program, students will design and progress their project. Students will be supervised by academic staff member(s) with expertise relevant to the topic.
This is one of two units which include:
Identify a research question
Review and critically appraise literature relevant to the chosen research question
Present research proposal at Honours Seminar
Design and undertake a research project in an ethical manner.
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.
