Course summary

The degree aims to allow engagement with research with a view to the writing of a thesis.

The thesis should not exceed 20,000 words (excluding references and notes) and must represent a significant contribution to learning, for example through the discovery of new knowledge, the connection of previously unrelated facts, the development of a new theory, or the revision of older views, and must take account of previously published work on the subject.

Most time will be spent working independently, but the department, supervisor and College will support you throughout the degree. The Degree will allow attendance at regular seminars in your subject area and involvement in the social life of your department and College.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme, students will have: a comprehensive understanding of techniques, and a thorough knowledge of the literature, applicable to their own research; demonstrated originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in their field; shown abilities in the critical evaluation of current research and research techniques and methodologies; demonstrated some self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and acted autonomously in the planning and implementation of research.
