EDUC6281 MA (Ed) Flex Assignment 1
This module is designed to introduce students to Masters level study and to support them with their individual needs at the beginning of their studies. Its endpoint is an assignment with a maximum length of 4,500 words (or equivalent) on a topic of the student’s choice, negotiated with the tutor, but thematically related to the topics of the subsequent modules. Through it, students are expected to begin to locate and select relevant literature, and develop their skills in constructing a written argument within an appropriately academic genre. Module content is negotiated between student and supervising tutor. There is therefore no set syllabus.
