MDL6046 Study and Dissertation Support

Aims/Description: The aim of this module is to give students of the MA in Intercultural Communication the opportunity to research a topic in the field (to be agreed with the dissertation supervisor). They will be expected to put into practice theories, strategies, methods and techniques already studied in the relevant preparatory modules; they may also link their dissertation to a work-placement or work-based project, in which case the dissertation approach may be more practice-oriented, drawing on theories. The normal length of the dissertation will be 12-16,000 words.

Staff Contact: Dr J Woodin
