MDIA 7007 - Media Masters Research Methods

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2021

This course provides you with a range of advanced media methodologies and research frameworks for carrying out sophisticated research. It focuses on research methods relevant to your major research dissertation or creative work. How do the methods we choose in our research shape the kinds of knowledge we produce? What kinds of insights can be gained through different methodologies? What are the politics and ethics of different research methods? What are the central themes of media research and why? What role does previous literature play in ongoing research? How do you structure a research proposal? How do you find and keep track of resources? How do you structure a literature review? How do you structure an argument? This course will be partly skills-based and partly theoretical, with assessments and activities closely aligned with your individual research project.
