  2. be familiar with the typological profile of Oceanic languages, in domains such as phonology, morphology, syntax, semantic structures;
  3. be able to situate the historical development of Oceanic languages within the broader history of the Asia-Pacific region;

Indicative Assessment

Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates but may expect more rigorous assessment and additional assignment work, tailored to the student's interests.

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.

Workload

32 contact hours (lectures/tutorials) over the course of the semester.
