Details for undergraduate courses
  • Honours core unit in Work and Employment Relations [Bachelor of Arts (Honours)]
Content
In this unit students develop advanced knowledge of their discipline through reading, presenting and writing activities in selected advanced areas of employment relations. The work is structured, guided and assessed by one of the academic staff members of the employment relations discipline. The academic objective is for students to acquire advanced knowledge appropriate to honours level. As this is a special topics unit, the topics vary from year to year and address recent developments in employment relations.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) demonstrate the acquisition of up-to-date knowledge of employment relations theories and research findings; (2) organise information and present arguments about recent theoretical developments in selected employment relations topics; and (3) critically evaluate, through oral and written communications, their understanding of employment relations research and its application to practical employment relations problems.

Assessment information is provided in the unit outline.
