This course will entail research work which will contribute to musicological understanding (at undergraduate level). Students will research a topic of their own choice (subject to approval), demonstrating knowledge and understanding of their chosen subject matter in the form of a 10,000 word dissertation.
|30 credits (15 ECTS credits)
Dissertation of 10,000 words on an approved musicological topic.
The dissertation is an opportunity to manage a larger-scale project on a topic that interests you, and to demonstrate your ability to undertake independent research and study.
To get the most out of the supervision on offer, it is important:
• to work consistently throughout the year, organising your time efficiently;
• to be able to report on progress at each supervision;
• to have produced some work (not necessarily written) for each supervision that can be the focus of discussion within the group, or between you and the supervisor;
• to attend supervisions with a clear sense of what you hope to gain from them – for example, by bringing a list of questions and queries with you.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
You may receive feedback in the form of annotations to formative work. It is important to note that positive feedback on work in progress is no guarantee of any particular mark for the finished product. You will receive feedback on your final submission via a report form.
Your supervisor may require you to produce one or more pieces of written work (totalling approximately 1,500 words) during the course of the year.
