Module overview

This module forms the first part of a dissertation in Economics. You will undertake a substantive piece of independent work in composing a literature review on your chosen research topic. You will motivate the research topic, survey and review the relevant academic literature and identify gaps in our knowledge by proposing a research question and appropriate methodology for future research. This is designed to demonstrate your ability to manage your own learning, to draw together information from a variety of sources and to demonstrate your ability to understand and convey the current state of academic research on an economic topic.
