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.
