An Individually Negotiated Topic offers students the opportunity to explore in detail an archaeological area of their choice, by means of guided independent research. Subject areas are chosen in collaboration with the Programme Coordinator in agreement with the Director of Programmes. The content is negotiated individually between you and the tutor whose expertise most closely matches your interests. Module content and assessment modes are agreed by the end of the second week of the semester in which the course is taken and recorded on the student’s course selection form (returned to the Programme Coordinator). This module provides students with a short, highly supervised ‘bite’ of research on a topic of their choosing (within the range of topics for which the Department can provide expert supervision).
