Overview

Students in the Bachelor of Public Affairs and Policy Management (BPAPM) Program must register in PAPM 4908 Honours Research Essay (HRE) in their final year. This course constitutes one credit (1.0 CR). The intention is that the topic area of the essay relate to policy issues relevant to the student’s Specialization within the degree. However, the project can take a wide range of forms, resembling an academic study more than a policy paper, and because of the wide range of possible topics and approaches, the faculty colleagues who kindly agree to supervise a BPAPM Honours Research Essay come from across the Faculty of Public Affairs, and indeed from across the University as a whole.
