Course Description

This course will provide the opportunity for students to pursue in-depth exploration of a specific topic of interest in Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Studies, but which is not catered for in the academic session. The student will undertake intensive, supervised work on the topic in order to enhance his/her research, writing and/or language skills. The specific content of the course may vary, but the course focuses on enhancing the student's knowledge and research skills in the specified topic, and the completion of two research papers, or one paper and an examination. The course will provide students with an opportunity for intensive engagement in a specific area within the research field of an individual staff member. It can be arranged as preparatory work towards a dissertation, if the student requires intensive, supervised study in a specific area not covered by the available Honours courses.
