This unit provides advanced students who are self-directed and highly motivated and who are taking an approved co-requisite unit with the opportunity to further expand their linguistic competence and knowledge of a topic area by undertaking an in-depth project or program of study. This will usually include research on a specific topic and written work. Other activities may include participation in relevant conferences and forums, viewing and production of creative works, small group projects or community involvement. Specific content and assessment will be negotiated and set out in writing prior to the commencement of semester, or within the first two weeks.
