80041 Dissertation

Requisite(s): 80029 Independent Project: Conceptual Development AND 80030 Research Methods




The dissertation is a substantive body of written work, designed to complement the independent project component of the honours degree. While its content is determined individually, its fundamental aim is to situate the research area within historical, comparative literature and related works. This is done through the investigation of appropriate methodologies for criticising, comparing and evaluating the medium such as usability evaluation for interaction, aesthetics in photography, etc. Based on the individual students negotiation of the structure of their honours year, student's proposed aim, philosophy or theoretical context and method for developing the designed outcome of their independent project may interact with or inform the subject of their dissertation.
