The module is assessed by either:

  • one 4,000-4,500 word coursework essay; or
  • one 2-hour examination in the summer term.

The finalised and approved coursework essay titles for 2016-17 are available here.

The deadline for the submission of coursework essays is published on the School's web pages for undergraduates.

Students taking the examination will answer two questions. The choice will be from one question on each of the five set texts plus one question which will invite students to compare any two texts from those studied. Students may not write substantively on any individual text in more than one question. The examination paper for 2015-16 is available at .
