This course has been designed to allow students in the Master of Arts degree to complete their thesis, or practice-led project with accompanying written exegesis, and represents the second half of the research project commenced in MAR8003. Students will use this course to undertake structured independent learning under the guidance of a supervisor.

This 2 unit course enables students enrolled in the Master of Arts program to either complete their thesis, or their practice-led project with written exegesis. The thesis shall consist of 20,000 words on a topic chosen by the student and approved by the supervisor, and may be either the result of original investigations, or embody a critical appraisal or analysis of primary or secondary source material. The practice-led project will be accompanied by a written exegesis of 10,000 words and will enable students to explore at an advanced level the intersection between theory and practice applying their experiential knowledge. The emphasis will be primarily on practice in order to identify and articulate significant discoveries made through experiential methodologies to increase Masters-level discipline expertise.
