The dissertation provides you with an opportunity to consider an area of interest in greater depth. It should illustrate your ability to analyse and synthesise relevant literature, present arguments supported by relevant evidence and logical discussion and acknowledge sources of ideas and information. The fundamental requirement for this aspect of your degree is that the work is well planned and presented.
The dissertation should be the product of your own experience, reading and reflection. Although original work is always welcome, you will not be expected to engage in substantial original research. Although we encourage empirical work when appropriate, ‘library based’ dissertations based on your reactions and responses to secondary sources are acceptable at this level.
