MUSEC staff are highly research active and offer quality supervision to a limited number of research students from special education and related areas such as psychology. Academic staff only supervise students in areas in which they are actively researching or have expertise. Our aim is for the research student, in partnership with their supervisor(s), to produce a thesis based on research that is of sufficient quality to warrant publication in a refereed academic journal and to influence positively the field.
MUSEC adopts the preferred Macquarie research model involving completion of a thesis by publication. Within MUSEC, higher degree research programs are viewed as offering an apprenticeship in research. Staff both mentor and collaborate with students. This is reflected in the range of articles published over recent years that have arisen as a result of collaborative research with students. For information on areas of research that may be considered, please see staff research interests.
