MR602 : Dissertation – 60 credits

Undertaking a Dissertation provides students with an opportunity to do original in-depth research at postgraduate level. The dissertation is a scholarly piece of written work that reports on the findings of a theoretical, practical or empirical investigation into a defined area of early childhood education. Students will engage in a supervised investigation of a topic of their interest. Students are expected to be self-directed in their studies and to produce an account of their research that equates to internationally recognised standards.

The provision of this course furthermore acknowledges that postgraduate students contribute their own knowledge and experiences to the program and that the breadth of their studies will engage research that is relevant to early childhood education communities.
