Aims/Description: This module gives students the opportunity to plan and execute an extended piece of independent research, on a topic within Language studies that complements but does not duplicate work done in taught modules. It must relate to at least one of the countries/cultures whose languages are being studied. Students will have to demonstrate their preparedness for the dissertation by having done a module relevant to the proposed topic area at level 2, or by registering for a relevant module at level 3, although the dissertation is not in principle tied to a particular module.
