Unit Description

This unit caters for students who plan to design a research project and write a thesis in disciplines such as social science, education, community development and counselling. It is not a generalist, all-purpose research methods course, but rather a focused preparation for carrying out specific research projects.

Informed by a Christian worldview research projects will be developed to focus on one of the core streams of study.

Since different students will come into the unit with a different mix of skills and will want to embark on a wide range of research projects, the unit is designed to identify individual capacities relevant to conducting research, provide focused specialist input, a collective forum for debating research approaches, and assistance with locating other necessary resources.
