Research master degrees may be undertaken in both Schools of the Faculty: Deakin Business School and Deakin Law School. They are available full time or part time, and in Campus or Cloud (online) mode (if appropriate). Research degrees undertaken in the Deakin Law School lead to the award of Master of Laws (by major thesis) or Doctor of Philosophy. A member of the academic staff will be appointed as principal supervisor for each candidate for a higher degree by research. Associate supervisors, either internal or external, may be appointed to assist the principal supervisor. Candidates will be required to meet certain attendance requirements. A candidate is required to complete a thesis embodying the results of research carried out in the field of study specified at the time of enrolment.
