Aims/Description: This module allows students to investigate a research question in music education, which may be empirical or theoretical. Students are required to submit a dissertation of around 16,000 words, which shows an awareness of established literature in the field, of appropriate data collection and analysis, and of interpretation of results or theories. Supporting materials and the opportunity for peer discussion will be provided through WebCT, along with individual guidance from a member of the course staff.
