Students will undertake three core modules, two optional modules, and a research component where they can conduct field work, analyse their data in light of existing knowledge, and write a thesis for examination.
During the taught stage, core modules aim to support students in identifying their specific research questions through a critical review of the literature; develop the requisite knowledge, understanding, and practical skills in appropriate research methods; and produce a compelling rationale and plan for conducting a substantive piece of original research. Optional modules present opportunities for further learning, while the research component involves rigorous data collection and analysis to produce a 60,000-word thesis that systematically presents research, learning, and contribution to knowledge.
