Content
This unit can be taken full-time or part-time. The unit is a component of the Master of Forensic Science by research (Anthropology) and represents the equivalent of two semesters of full-time study towards a final thesis.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) develop scientific writing skills; (2) gain practical experience in independent scientific experimentation; and (3) develop research skills through the completion of a project of direct relevance to forensic anthropology.
Assessment
This is based on the examination of a written thesis by two experts in the student's field of research. The examiners evaluate the extent to which the thesis represents a substantial work based on independent research; demonstration of sound knowledge of the subject area; independence of thought; and the ability to convey information in a clear and concise language.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
