This research course is designed for those intending to complete an extended piece of original research under the supervision of a staff member with interest and expertise in public policy.
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
It is a requirement that two-thirds of this course is undertaken by research and only one-third by coursework. Students should not enrol in this research degree to receive a related graduate diploma but rather have undertaken it as a requisite for admission.
Master Degrees (Research) require students to undertake an approved research program leading to a thesis for independent examination; they may include advanced level coursework studies.
This course is studied as a research degree. The content of the degree should be determined in consultation with the Deputy Head of Graduate Studies in the Department of Social Sciences. Students without prior studies in research methods and statistical data analysis will be required to undertake relevant preparatory units. This will increase the stated course duration.
