The dissertation provides each Honours student with the opportunity to undertake an original and independent research project of their own choice. The thesis or dissertation (14,000-16,000 words) is the written document of the research project and its findings. The planning, research and writing of the thesis will help the student to further develop many academic skills, such as research, critical analysis and writing, to a more advanced level than undergraduate studies. For their thesis, students will be supervised by an academic staff member. Supervisors help with the development of the research topic and questions, and provide regular support and feedback for the students. The combination of own independent research with the guidance and support of the academic supervisor is the essential learning and teaching part of this core component of the Asian Studies Honours program.
