This course is available for in-person and remote (online) learning. Remote (online) and in-person students participate together in the same class.

This course requires a permission code to enrol. Students in this course carry out advanced research on a question of their choice relating to the fields of Criminology, Justice or Regulation. Students design and implement a project to answer their research question, to place the answer in the context of an intellectual tradition, and to communicate it clearly to others.

To enrol in this course, students must:

1) Have successfully completed 48 units of ANU courses in the Master of Criminology, Justice and Regulation program;

2) Have maintained an average of 70% in their courses in the program; and

3) Provide written agreement from an identified supervisor willing to supervise the thesis commencing in a specified semester.



Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Pose a significant research question relating to Criminology, Justice or Regulation;
  2. Investigate this question creatively, critically, ethically, and independently, including through sophisticated use of appropriate theory and methodology as appropriate to Criminology, Justice or Regulation, and place these investigations in the context of the relevant intellectual tradition; and
  3. Communicate their research and its findings through an appropriate medium, at a level close to publishable quality.

Other Information

The course proceeds through one-on-one mentoring of all stages of the student's project by a supervising academic.

Students may be required to present their work in draft in a seminar to staff and peers. They will be supported to develop their oral and digital research presentation skills because this is an important part of research communication.
