Course Structure
Coursework provides for both disciplinary specialisation,
and an interdisciplinary elective option selected in
consultation with your supervisor and the course
coordinator. The course consists of three coursework units
and the equivalent of five units of supervised independent
study, resulting in a 15 000-18 000 word thesis. The
requirements for graduating are satisfactory (or better)
performance in all units. The final mark for the course is
determined on the basis of marks assigned in the
coursework units The Logic of Social Inquiry, Literature
Review, and the advanced elective, plus the mark awarded
to the thesis, with weighting being given according to the
proportion of credit points within the total. The Honours
thesis will be marked by two assessors, one of whom will
normally be external to QUT.
