Brief description

This module follows up from AH20920 Dissertation Preparation and Professional Practice for Students of Art History, which guides students through the process of planning a dissertation, from the initial research and review of subject-specific literature to the proposal stage.
Whereas AH20920 is taught in seminar sessions, the Dissertation module is taught as a series of individual tutorials in which students negotiate, shape and finalise their dissertation project with the assistance of their dissertation supervisors.


The Dissertation module enables students to demonstrate independent research by producing a study of approximately four to five times the length of the average undergraduate essay assignment. The topics are chosen by the students and negotiated with their supervisors. The core content is delivered in the pre-requisite module AH20920 Dissertation Preparation and Professional Practice for Students of Art History.
