SSCI3602 - Internship Research Paper

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 12

Coordinator: Jennifer Wilkinson


The Internship Research Paper provides an opportunity for students to reflect on their research experiences during the internship in a social sciences environment (SSCI3601). Students will keep a reflective journal about their research experiences during the internship, which will form the basis of a research report to be submitted for assessment. Students, in consultation with a supervisor from the Bachelor of Social Sciences program, will formulate a topic for their research essay which should demonstrate the ability to reflect critically on the relation between their practical experience in their particular placement and social science theory more generally.
