Master of Research - Cognitive Science - COGS899

In Year 2 of the Master of Research, candidates in the Departments within the Faculty of Human Sciences are enrolled in one of the following time-based units:

COGS899 (Cognitive Science)
ECED899 (Early Childhood Education)
EDCN899 (Education)
LING899 (Linguistics)
PSY899 (Psychology)

This second year of our Master of Research is designed around the writing of an original research dissertation of 15, 000 to 20, 000 words. This thesis is externally examined and worth 90% of your overall result. The remaining 10% comes from a critical essay in Research Frontiers, a component of this unit where you explore some aspect of your research through reading, research seminars, or other mechanisms, and you write a critical essay on your chosen research question. Each Department offers training in research methods and techniques associated with the data and research approaches relevant to the discipline.

To successfully complete this second year of the MRes, you will, in addition to the dissertation and Research Frontiers essays, be required to develop a plan for the research for your dissertation, write a literature review, and prepare and revise a PhD research proposal
