The ability to apply theories and content is a crucial component of any area of study within the Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts. It is particularly important that students are able to identify research and professional problems, resolve them in a methodical and ethical manner, and reflect critically on the process. This course enables students to develop advanced skills within the area of their disciplinary major, in close consultation with a designated supervisor.

This course enables students to enhance and diversify an area of specialist studies or acquire professional experience, through independent learning and/or work placement. The course builds on theory and practice taught previously in students chosen major. The course is flexible in terms of the variety of ways in which students may successfully complete assessment. To complete this course however, students will be required to devise a special research project or complete a work placement. Students will demonstrate advanced scholarship through the submission of professional reports or an extended research essay. The material studied and the assessments must be different from HMT3001, if previously taken by the student.
