Module F8515

Module details for 2016/17.

15 credits

FHEQ Level 5

Module Outline

The Southeast England Field Class introduces students to a particular field destination in SE England, usually including the local Sussex region. After a series of preparatory lectures students will carry out data collection in situ for a period of about 10-14 days. Analysis and the writing up of a research report will take place upon their return. The course presents an opportunity for faculty to familiarise students with a location in which they themselves conduct research and gives students the experience of carrying out their own research in that location.

Module learning outcomes

1. Implement quantitative and/or qualitative research methods

2. Familiarise oneself with the landscape and culture of a selected research site

3. Write a good field report

4. Demonstrate experience of field data collection and analysis which will assist in the preparation of the final-year Undergraduate Thesis.
