On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
- Undertake and write an extensive literature review on a topic of safety science.
- Conduct research (supported by ethics committee approval) that uses appropriate research methods
and data analysis techniques to address research questions.
- Discuss the implications of the research project for theory and practice in safety science.
- Demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of a topic in safety science.
This is the second unit of two research thesis units and is designed to complete the foundational
work that students carried out in Thesis 1. The two Thesis units are designed to introduce students to
the process of conducting research, enabling them to carry out an independent research study. In Thesis
2 the students will continue to work with their allocated supervisor who will support them in the conduct of
their research, the undertaking of an extensive literature review and assist in the preparation of a final
piece of work which can deliver the student's research findings to a wider audience. Students will also be
able to continue to discuss the unit content and their research progress with their fellow peer
researchers through Moodle site discussion groups.
