The Master of Research is part of a combined set of programs that offer students a pathway into a higher degree by research from an undergraduate degree.
The Master of Research offers students the opportunity to undertake supervised research in the related discipline of their choice, with the aim of submitting a major thesis of 20,000 words.
Candidates develop a range of skills, including independent thinking, project management, data analysis and critical thinking, as well as refined communication skills.
The program fosters the development of independent research skills, making it ideal preparation for those looking to undertake further research through a PhD program and/or pursue a career in research.
To be eligible for admission into the Master of Research (MR-INTHTHS) course, an applicant must have successfully completed the Bachelor of Research (Honours) (BH-INTHTHS) at Swinburne with a credit average.
Students applying to the Master of Research (MR-INTHTHS) will automatically be considered for a place in the Bachelor of Research (Honours) (BH-INTHTHS) and do not need to apply separately for the Bachelor of Research (Honours) program.
