An important outcome of Masters level study is that learners should be able to design and execute independent projects that consolidate, build upon and/or apply the capabilities developed through their program of study in their workplace. This course, taken at, or towards the end of the program, is part of a ‘capstone experience’ that enables students to synthesise the knowledge and skills developed in earlier courses of their program into an approved research project focused on a key aspect of their interest or specialisation. This independent project is the conclusion of work commenced in other research courses.

With guidance from a member of academic staff as supervisor, students will conduct an independent project, based on a research proposal developed in HSC8060 Research Project Design, and which relates to their overall program of study. The project commenced in HSC8070 Masters Project A, and will be completed in this course. The student will prepare a final project report of an appropriate scholarly standard, in the form of thesis or manuscript for submission to a high quality journal, approved by the Course Examiner.. This course will operate on the basis of regular individual consultation, interaction, and negotiation between the student and the nominated supervisor, and written and verbal feedback by the supervisor on the student's work in progress.
