The Project in Ageing - S is the second of two capstone subject options in the Master of Ageing (see POPH90262 Project In Ageing for the 25 credit point subject). In this subject, students will have the opportunity to apply the academic knowledge and skills acquired throughout the Master of Ageing to a project that addresses a contemporary issue in ageing. Students will produce a project report, to be formally presented and reported on at the conclusion of the project. This subject requires students to further develop and consolidate their analytical and problem-solving skills. It is designed to be accompanied by a relevant coursework elective subject (12.5 points) selected by the student. Through this combination of subjects, and consolidation of content and methods, students are expected to develop a deep and broad knowledge of a particular aspect of ageing, such as Technology and Ageing, Design and Ageing, Culture and Ageing etc.
