Course Description

This course builds on the work carried out in Research Project Part I. During this course, students analyse the material they collected in Part One and, under the guidance of a member of staff, prepare and write the final report.

The techniques of analysis vary with the nature of the research problem; however all students are guided in the arts of:

  • critical analysis of existing literature
  • applying relevant theory to ethnography;
  • report planning and writing.

As in Part 1, particular emphasis is placed on helping students develop their own skills.
