As the capstone subject for the Social and Political Sciences major, this subject provides students with the opportunity to apply in a practical setting the knowledge and skills they have gained throughout their course. Students complete a major research project with an external organisation, such as a government department, local council, non-government organisation or corporation. Research projects are co-designed with these organisations and include tasks such as literature reviews, media analysis, community needs analysis and program evaluations. Students may alternatively choose to work on a self-initiated project at university.
