ME33A2: MEDICAL HUMANITIES ALTERNATIVE PROJECT (30 CREDITS) (2019-2020)

Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

Alternative projects are your ideas; this is your opportunity to identify a topic of your own choosing to study in depth that considers Medicine and Healthcare from an alternative perspective. Purely Scientific/ Medical projects will not be approved, otherwise there is no limit to the possibilities.

Where possible you should find a suitable person with appropriate expertise to supervise you and to assess your work academically. The Medical Humanities team may be able to help you find a suitable supervisor.

Course Description

You should contact the SSC coordinator by email in the first instance with an outline of your proposal and then you will be asked to complete a proposal form (see below). You will need to have submitted your proposal by Monday 3rd June email to leeannebodkin@abdn.ac.uk

You will be invited to discuss your proposal at a meeting with the medical humanities team before the summer. We consider your proposal with you and if the project is feasible in terms of time involved, costs and eventual outputs. The more preparatory research into the project you do the better chance it has of approval. Students may only undertake an 'alternative' project in Medical Humanities, with the approval of the Medical Humanities team. We will decide with you if it is to be worth 15 credits and agree equitable assessment.
