The final component of the MAIR is a 15 000 word thesis on a topic the student devises in consultation with their supervisor.

A thesis might apply an established theory to a new body of evidence or set of cases.  It might try to develop a new theory about well known evidence.  A mojor part of the thesis writing process is establishing what research question you will ask and how you will go about answering that question. 

The thesis should be an extended argument addressing an intellectual question, problem or issue. As it is 15 000 words in length it must be divided into a number of sections or chapters, with an introduction and conclusion.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
