Dissertation 1 (MCGY5618)


The Dissertation electives provide students in the Master of Music Studies (Performance) program an opportunity to conduct supervised research on a topic chosen in discussion with their supervisor. Successful completion of the Dissertation to a high standard is intended to provide students with the experience necessary to enter into a research degree. During the first semester, the student will commence work on the research project. Normally this will include the preparation of a written proposal and the survey of literature, as well as other work as determined with the supervisor.
