Supervised Project in Security Studies - PICT847

This unit gives students the opportunity to engage in the composition of a 6000 word self-directed research project, under the supervision of a subject area expert. This unit will necessitate students to thoroughly engage with the existing research on their topic, using it as a stepping-stone in developing their own research skills. Students will be mentored and trained on how to devise a research questions, translate this question into a set of research tasks, synthesise an appropriate methodological framework, conduct a literature review, collect data, and write up the result of their research as a coherent long research essay. This research relies on utilizing academic secondary sources and does not require original empirical work. Students intending to take this unit must contact the SSC Departmental Administrator, Michelle Lee, to discuss eligibility criteria and supervision arrangements at least two weeks before the start of semester.
