The CIM Masters dissertation is a piece of work (10,000 words) which addresses a single subject of your choice. The topic may concern any aspect of the subject matter of their programme.
The dissertation is an exercise in independent study in which you pursue a topic that interests you. It allows you to further develop your skills of literature search and bibliography construction, theoretical argument, generation and appraisal of empirical evidence.
By the end of the module, students should be able to:
- identify and critically interpret different conceptual approaches and developments in the field of research;
- produce independent research that demonstrates knowledge of a number of theoretical, practical and methodological perspectives studied during the degree;
- articulate dissertation ideas orally (to supervisors) and to produce well-argued written material, supported by wide reading and advanced research;
- formulate a sophisticated programme of research with an appropriate methodology.
The Dissertation is available for students on CIM Masters Programmes only.
Students on the Dissertation module will allocated a supervisor/s by the module convenor based on the topic of study.
