Undergraduate Faculty of Arts

Leader: Marianne Hicks


Clayton Second semester 2007 (Day)


This unit allows students enrolled in an approved INT co-requisite unit to undertake additional research studies providing them with the opportunity to investigate a topic at greater depth and to interrogate its epistemological assumptions and pursue related theoretical issues in a more substantial way than within the framework of the co requisite. The substantive content of the unit will differ, depending upon the particular problem the student selects for investigation. All students will undertake essentially the same tasks designed to equip them with the methodological skills appropriate to the International Studies major and the aims of the Bachelor of Arts (Global).


Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to: 1) Formulate and complete a substantial research project in International Studies; 2) Demonstrate independent research skills; 3) Place, in greater depth and breadth than is possible in the co-requisite unit, the relevant literature in its cultural, ideological and epistemological contexts by showing where it fits into the current state of knowledge; 4) Display their acquittance with some of the ongoing debates in the relevant disciplinary area (International Studies).
