Academic Research Project - RLST6946

Year - 2018

This unit consists of an intensive 6 week overview of skills and techniques for the preparation and presentation of academic research, using such journals as the American Academy of Religion as a guide. Students will then be required to present their own preliminary research topics to the class, to explain issues that require consideration, alternative methodological approaches that might be employed, competing perspectives that must be balanced, and so on. Supervision by an academic member of staff will carry through to the submission of the project. Students must consult the postgraduate coordinator prior to enrolment.
