The Master of Philosophy (Indigenous) offers an innovative approach to research education, combining structured intensives with a cohort model. A MPhil, or Masters by Research, differs from coursework in that you will develop and undertake your own research project with the assistance of advisors and the academic team at the IERC.
In an MPhil (Indigenous), you will undertake two research intensives where you will work with peers and advisors to learn about Indigenous research, develop your research skills and advance your project. Following the intensives, regular meetings with your experienced advisors will assist you as you undertake your research, culminating in the presentation of a thesis.
Indigenous Teaching Programs lecturers: Dr Ailie McDowall (Townsville), Associate Professor Felecia Watkin-Lui (Cairns), Dr Vincent Backhaus (Cairns) and Dr Dianna Hardy (Townsville).
