ISL596 Islamic Studies Project (16)

In consultation with their appointed supervisor students will identify and investigate specific issues impacting Muslims in Australia, and implement initiatives that aim to address the identified issue(s). The student's capacity to identify challenges, assemble materials, obtain ethics approval where required, argue a case for a solution, and develop and implement a project plan will be assessed. In addition, the student's application of critical thinking and interpretive judgement in developing effective measurable solutions will also be assessed.
