RESEARCH THESIS A
Credit points: 30
This subject represents one semester of a year long program. Students complete empirical work and a minor thesis which involves critical analysis of a significant and substantial body of knowledge in the field of human communication. This may involve preliminary work towards a higher degree thesis(and may address aspects preparatory to the larger thesis study), or a separate but related topic. This thesis must include a report of a thorough literature survey. This project is conducted under the supervision of the candidate's supervisor. It is a requirement that all students obtain ethics approval before collecting data.
