Content

Students will undertake a research project in small groups, choosing a research project from the range offered by available supervisors. Students will be required to familiarize themselves with the theory and past research in the area under investigation, and participate in all the steps involved in research, including the ethics application, formulation of hypotheses, design and methodological decisions, collection and analysis of data, and evaluation of the research questions under consideration. Although activities such as data collection may be conducted as a group, students will prepare an individually written report that will be based on the findings of their study. The project is to be regarded as a learning exercise for the student, with guidance and direction provided by the group supervisor. Data collected for these projects may be used in the ongoing research activities of the School.
