Module overview

You will undertake a substantive piece of independent work. This is designed to demonstrate your ability to manage your own learning, to draw together information for a variety of sources and to make use of a range of concepts and techniques at the postgraduate level. At the end of this module, you should be familiar with the concept of independent research. You should be able to compose an extended piece of writing, in which an argument is developed in response to a central question (thesis), supported by evidence you have acquired through research, which you are required to analyse, and which supports or contradicts the various perspectives explored in the course of that argument.
