Module aims

This module, which is compulsory for students on the English and Politics degree programme, gives students the chance to work as independent scholars on a project of their choice, rather than responding to the requirements of a taught module. Recognizing that over the course of their university career, students will have developed their own intellectual interests and preferences, this dissertation allows them to bridge the two disciplines using a combination of material and insights from both fields or to focus primarily on either the English or Politics side of their degree.

Module learning outcomes

Students who complete the dissertation successfully will have:

  • designed a research project and explored and analyzed a research topic at length.
  • managed a substantial research project to completion.
  • developed skills and understanding from extended research into original and/or secondary material.
  • learned to situate their specific research project and findings among the debates and views of other scholars in one or more academic disciplines.
  • developed their writing and argumentation skills.
  • become familiar with bibliographic and informational resources and proficient in the use of appropriate word processing packages. Depending on the topic, students will have the opportunity to learn and utilize analytical techniques used in modern social science and humanities research.
