Research Masters and PhD
We offer supervision for Research Masters and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students, and we co-supervise honours students who are interested in topics related to fathers, fatherhood or fathering.
Our supervision includes refining your research proposal, planning your research, finding co-supervisors and identifying the skills and the support that you will need to complete your research.
Our research students become part of the team at F&FRP. We practice co-operative learning; you will be expected to contribute to the research culture and you will have access to senior researchers with a wide range of experience in conducting quantitative, qualitative and mixed-method fatherhood studies.
