Module overview

Undertaking independent research into an aspect of literature or creative writing which particularly interests you is a cornerstone of your degree. A dissertation gives you the opportunity to study a subject in much greater depth than usual and, with guidance from a supervisor, you will rigorously explore your literary or creative topic, formulate a research question and develop a distinctive argument or creative project. A dissertation can also form a good basis if you wish to go on to study at postgraduate level.
