Course Coordinator

Ruth McManus


The project will be undertaken and completed in semester 2, 2013.
Given the range and diversity of 470 projects each student and his/her supervisor will develop a specific time-line at the beginning of semester 2. However, in very general terms, it is recommended that in Term 3 students produce a literature review, complete a Human Ethics application (if required), collect their data (for example, conduct interviews or gather archival materials) and begin analysis and writing. In Term 4 the focus is on analysis and writing up the research project.
