20 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: Completion of module requirements of previous semesters of MUNDUS Masters Crossways.

Aims/Description: This module is for initial progress towards the accomplishment of the final dissertation on the MUNDUS Masters Crossways in Cultural Narratives. This degree lasts two years (four semesters) and is spent by the student at three institutions from among the members of the MUNDUS Crossways consortium (including Sheffield) as follows: Semester 1: University A; Semesters 2 & 3: University B; Semester 4: University C. The module will be taken In Semester 3 of the degree by any student on the programme who has opted for Sheffield as their University B. The module will be linked for the student with a 40-credit (20-ECTS) Dissertation Completion module which the student will take in Semester 4 at their University C (any other member institution of the consortium except the Universities of St Andrews and Guelph). The Dissertation Progress module reflects and rewards the student's commencement of their dissertation in Semester 3, the expert supervision they receive at University B (i.e. Sheffield), and the Sheffield supervisor's co-marking of the dissertation; the 40-credit (10-ECTS) Dissertation Completion module reflects and rewards the student's completion and submission of the dissertation, the expert supervision they receive at University C; and the University C supervisor's co-marking of the dissertation. The Dissertation Completion and Dissertation Progress modules will be awarded the same mark following agreement of the two supervisor/markers (using the agreed and established MUNDUS Crossways mark conversion scale) on an appropriate grade for the final dissertation.
