What is this course about?

CSU's Applied Science program is an articulated sequence of postgraduate courses providing students with the flexibility to select subjects from the vast range available to tailor course content that matches their individual needs and aspirations in the fields of Science and Agriculture.

This is an articulated sequence of postgraduate degrees which incorporates a Graduate Certificate in Applied Science, a Graduate Diploma of Applied Science and a Master of Applied Science. These courses provide students with the flexibility to select subjects from the vast range available to tailor a course that matches their individual needs and aspirations. Under the guidance of the Course Coordinator, the courses offer graduates the opportunity to develop their own content in their chosen field of study.

Students develop a capacity for independent research and problem analysis and solution. Students undertaking the course will develop their knowledge and understanding through formal coursework and a program of independent reading. Their research, analytical and problem-solving skills will be developed through analysis and review of research literature and the completion of a research project in their dissertation.
