Study commitment

Students will on average spend 150-hours over the teaching period undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit.

This will include educator guided online learning activities within the unit site.


This unit will see the completion of the research project and its final written report: either a communication project combined with an exegesis (16,000 words); or a 16,000 word scholarly thesis.

In consultation with their supervisor, each student will integrate feedback from previously completed sections of their research undertaken in units ACO412 Advanced Communication Research A, ACO413 Advanced Communication Research B and ACO414 Advanced Communication Research C and present for examination a report which identifies a coherent research problem, rationale for the study (why it is an important area for study or investigation), its heuristic value (its potential impact on the discipline/society) and identify the suitable theoretical perspectives required to provide a context to the study. The report will be based on original research involving theoretical, interpretative and analytical work.
