This is the capstone subject for the Graduate Diploma in Local Government Management (C06033). It can also be taken as an elective subject in the Master of Local Government (C04257). Students undertake a process of original applied research, addressing a topic that is relevant to local government practice, and produce a research report which presents the study in full. They link their work to current literature on the topic, including readings derived from any of the subjects in the foundation and elective subjects they have undertaken. In this process, they work together with a supervisor, who supports them in carrying out the reading, research and writing necessary to complete the research report.
