Course unit details:
|Unit level||FHEQ level 7 – master's degree or fourth year of an integrated master's degree|
|Teaching period(s)||Full year|
|Available as a free choice unit?||No|
You may write a dissertation on any topic of your choosing, subject to finding an academic who will agree to supervise it, and subject to the approval of the Course Unit Director.
Dissertations may be strongly based on original primary source research, they might aim to re-interpret an already well-trawled area of the subject, or they might take up an approach somewhere between these two extremes.
It is also possible to do a Dissertation by Practice.
The Dissertation by Practice consists of a written dissertation (5,000-10,000 words) and a practical component. The expectation is that the practical component will consist of a piece of audiovisual practice (15-30 minutes), or an applied film studies project, the scope of which must be discussed with the supervisor.
Resources permitting, practice can include creative writing, film, video or radio production, or an applied film studies project in an appropriate community setting.
Teaching and learning methods
4 x 30 minute supervisions.
