Undergraduate

Description

This is the second of four subjects belonging to the Bachelor of Property Economics (Honours) (C09063) (it is designed to be completed alongside 16262 Honours Research 1). Over these four subjects, the student works with a research supervisor to design, carry out, and report on a research project. There is significant variation possible in how the student accomplishes these goals. The thesis might be quantitative or qualitative, written up in conventional academic format or presented primarily online. Task structure varies among projects and should be determined between the supervisor and student, depending on the research aims.

This subject is delivered through individual meetings between student and supervisor. As the second of a four-subject Honours sequence, this subject aims to take students through the process of developing a sound research methodology, and prepare them to the point where they are able to begin the research fieldwork. This involves developing an understanding of research methodologies, and evaluating the appropriateness of various methodological approaches to the research questions and objectives established in 16262 Honours Research 1. The subject also develops the specific research skills needed, for example survey design, interview skills, or statistical analysis. The specific research skills needed are decided on by the student and supervisor. Students work closely with their supervisors to develop a research design and write the methodology chapter of the thesis.
