Media and Communications Dissertation (P4121)
30 credits, Level 6
This dissertation module allows you to draw upon material taught in your third year autumn modules in order to write and research your 8,000 word dissertation.
It is aimed to build upon appropriate critical, theoretical and methodological approaches encountered in those modules. As such the course will enable you to draw together and reflect upon the skills and knowledge acquired not just in Year 3, but throughout your degree course.
The module is largely self-directed permitting them to focus upon their specific and individual topic of research. Introductory lectures, tutorials both group and individual and research workshops will guide students through the process of planning, researching and writing their dissertation.
