Description

Languages and Cultures Capstone Project (L&C CP) involves a reflective and research-based assessment about language and cultural issues in contemporary societies. This subject is designed to enable students to study languages other than English and cultures other than, or in addition to, Australia and is guided by the principles of reflection and inquiry-based learning. Students build upon their prior studies to devise and conduct a major mixed-methods research project with an academic supervisor. It fosters in students a capacity for critical reflection – in particular, the ability to identify and question one's cultural assumptions, values and beliefs, and thus to acknowledge and empathise with the perspectives of people from other cultures.
