Applied Positive Psychology Project B is the second of two integrated thesis units. In these units, you will plan, design - and have the option to conduct, assess and report - an advanced intervention project in a positive psychology/wellbeing or resilience-related field. Stage 2 of the thesis process will occur in this unit and includes two options, both conducted under the supervision of a qualified Academic supervisor. Option 1 Submit a completed thesis, which will include: • A Systematic Review, submitted in journal article format • Reporting all elements of your proposed intervention, as specified in the Unit Assessment Guide. Option 2 (only recommended for students working 0-3 days per week). • Implement your intervention project • Collect and assess data and/or interviews (quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods) or utilise an existing dataset • Submit a completed thesis. Your completed thesis submission will include a comprehensive literature review as well as reporting all elements of your research project, as specified in the Unit Assessment Guide. Support and training will be provided within both units for planning, conducting and evaluating a rigorous Master's level research study, and for reporting a study or proposed study via a thesis format.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 24-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 50 hours of study per week, making a total of 600 hours for the unit.
This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
