Syllabus

This is the capstone unit of both the Bachelor of Politics and International Relations and the Bachelor of Social and Economic Policy. The unit will normally be undertaken in the student's final semester of study. Taking a contemporary policy issue as a case study, the unit will provide student with the opportunity to draw together their learning from both the academic content and professional practice undertaken during their course. The course will provide students in the School of Government & Policy with the opportunity to work in teams to consider policy issues in an interdisciplinary environment similar to that which, as graduates of these degrees, they are likely to encounter in their future workplaces. They will develop a portfolio building on the reflective practice that has been incorporated in units throughout their courses.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate career-readiness, a clear professional identity, and insight into the skills, knowledge and personal attribute necessary to meet the standards of performance and practice expected by their profession;

2. Critically reflect on their learning and the development of their skills throughout their course and consider their ongoing development into their professional lives;
