Creative and Critical Writing Dissertation (895Q3)

60 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Summer teaching

The dissertation is a final, extended research project completed under the supervision of a nominated member of faculty who specialises in the relevant field. If you're on the Creative and Critical Writing course, you will submit creative work together with a critical account of its composition or analysis of your own processes. You will decide on a topic of your own choice, build an extensive bibliography, read widely in secondary literature and in theory, and produce a long, carefully argued dissertation whose "critical" component will be presented in conformity with professional academic MLA or Chicago referencing conventions.
