Modules

The dissertation is an extended piece of written work that provides an opportunity to identify and investigate a particular question and explore it systematically. Aims: A dissertation aims to develop independent critical thought on a research topic. The broad educational purpose of the dissertation is to encourage students to utilise a wide range of methodological options, to research the literature on a specialism within a discipline, and to develop, with the help of a Dissertation Supervisor, an original angle on a topic of social scientific interest which he or she has elected to pursue.
