An individually negotiated research project that comprises the Capstone experience for this course. Drawing on theory, knowledge and skills developed throughout the Master of English in a Global Context, students will undertake a substantial critical review of a particular body of literature. The Capstone project will culminate with the synthesis of findings of their work in a written report. A hurdle requirement for this subject is that students will also provide an oral presentation of their findings, which should incorporate a reflection on the key learnings and understandings they have gained from their studies in the Master of English in a Global Context.
On completion of this subject, students should be able to:
Research report, 10,000 words (100%)
Attendance at all classes (tutorial/seminars/practical classes/lectures/labs) is obligatory. Failure to attend 80% of classes will normally result in failure in the subject.
