20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: The final year dissertation module allows students to develop a research topic of their choice, in conjunction with a member of staff who will act as supervisor. A student may choose either a 20 credit dissertation in the 1st semester, or a 40 credit dissertation, working on their project for the whole academic year. There will be research and academic writing training in the first semester, and we recommend arranging monthly supervision meetings throughout the module.

Restrictions on availability: Dual Honours Students in Biblical Studies only
