Dissertation Part 2 - GSDD5022

Year - 2020

Dissertation Part 2 is the second part of a two-semester capstone sequence (with Dissertation Part 1) that provides an opportunity to undertake an advanced investigation on a topic or issue through the development of either a proposal for independent empirical research on that topic or a substantial paper, such as a literature review, that demonstrates the application of scholarly literature to a practical problem. On completion of this two-unit sequence, students will have gained research skills and experience of formulating a problem, of designing a study using the most appropriate methodology, and of drawing conclusions. Thus, the Dissertation will provide an ideal preparation for those who choose to go on to postgraduate research. Dissertation Part 1 is a prerequisite for Dissertation Part 2.
