Module overview

Your dissertation will give you an opportunity to conduct a small-scale, independent empirical research project on a topic which you choose relevant to your particular degree programme. Guided by an academic supervisor, you will use appropriate methodological tools (introduced on your first and second year methods modules) to collect data, undertaking an ethics application where required. You will develop your skills in managing information, analysing data, and critically evaluating the literature relevant to your project. You will produce a clearly written and presented report of your research.
