Interdisciplinary Courses (CHS)
Doctor of Philosophy
This interdisciplinary doctoral course consists of the preparation of a research proposal, the conduct of research, the preparation of a thesis, and participation in seminars and conferences.
Although formal coursework is not a stipulated part of requirements, coursework may be required and will be assigned by the School on an individual basis.
The interdisciplinary approach recognises that solutions to problems often rely on knowledge gained across traditional disciplines.
In the selection of fields of research, students are encouraged to examine the broad perspective within which the problem lies and to adopt problem-solving techniques applicable across disciplines. Studies will be undertaken by research and thesis presentation.
Additional Course Information
Candidates will be provided with an initial adviser and, once the research proposal has been formally accepted, a supervisory team will be appointed consisting of a principal supervisor assisted by at least one additional supervisor.
The principal supervisor normally will be a staff member of the School. Additional supervisors may be staff from within Edith Cowan University or other universities, or may be from research institutes, government or industry.
Candidates should be available for consultation with the supervisory team appointed - students seeking to conduct research on an off-campus basis will be required to reach agreement with the University on arrangements for supervision.
This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
