The dissertation will involve you in a piece of investigative or literature-based research and will comprise one-third of the work for the degree. Work towards the dissertation will take place throughout the course. Increasing time will be given to the dissertation as the course progresses and, for both full-time and part-time students, the last term will be given over entirely to individual, dissertation-based work. In the dissertation you will be expected to demonstrate the ability to define a clearly focused research issue, as well as a wide appreciation of the context of the chosen topic. Research methods may vary considerably and you will work with an individual supervisor to evolve a methodology appropriate to the chosen topic. The subsequent inquiry should be based on systematic reading and data collection (as appropriate) and be accompanied by an awareness of the implications of the research to other research in the area.
