PEACE AND CONFLICT STUDIES POSTGRADUATE TIMETABLE 2017-18

All new and continuing PACS postgraduate students are required to consult with the MPACS Degree Director, , about their chosen program of units of study, and to obtain permission from the unit coordinator, , before enrolling in either the dissertation or internship units of study.

All PACS postgraduate students, including students taking PACS as a minor specialisation in their degree program, are encouraged to complete the core units PACS6911, PACS6902, PACS6915 and/or PACS6921 as early as possible in their degree. PACS students wishing to enrol in electives from other programs should discuss this with the MPACS Degree Director prior to enrolling. Note that students with recognition of prior learning (RPL) are not normally able to take electives from other programs.

Note: Students who commenced prior to 2016 take PACS6931 as a core unit, and either the dissertation or internship as a capstone. Students who commenced in 2016 or later take PACS6931 as a capstone and can take the dissertation or internship as a core elective. Note that PACS6931 will be offered twice in 2018, so students who commence in second semester 2017 can choose whether it is more appropriate for them to take the capstone unit in first or second semester.
