This final year subject provides students with the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills they have gained throughout their degree in a practical setting. Students may choose to undertake a placement with an external organisation, or work on a self-initiated project at university. Placements are arranged with a range of government departments, commercial organisations and international and local non-government organisations. There may also be limited places at NSW Parliament. Students undertake a discrete and manageable social research project at the placement, and are supervised externally as well as by an academic supervisor. Students choosing to conduct self-initiated research (e.g. as a foundation for Honours) work with an academic supervisor. There may also be opportunities for off-site field trips coordinated by an academic supervisor.
