- This unit is taken over two consecutive semesters for full-time enrolment or up to three consecutive semesters for part-time enrolment. Parts 1 to 3 must be completed to fulfil the requirements of the unit. Students can commence the unit in either semester 1 or semester 2. The unit is for students enrolled in the Master of Science (Exercise Science) by thesis and coursework [formerly Master of Science (Human Movement) by thesis and coursework]. Successful completion of the unit requires the submission of a research thesis demonstrating in-depth knowledge of a specific content area as well as the ability to conduct scientific research in this area and report the findings in a scholarly manner.
- Students are able to generate original ideas or thoughts; independently investigate these ideas or thoughts in a scientific manner; and compile a substantial, scholarly report about the findings of the investigation.
- The thesis is examined 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 and provides evidence of sound knowledge of the subject area; independence of thought; and ability to convey information in clear and concise language.
