It should reveal a critical approach to the relevant field and the methodology used. A minor thesis may be conceptual, empirical or exploratory in its approach. The content and methodology of the thesis must be negotiated with and approved by a supervisor. Candidates should begin the process of finding a supervisor in the semester before their minor thesis enrolment commences. Guidelines can be obtained from the Higher Degrees (Research) Administrator in the Faculty of Education or School of enrolment.
