Critical Dissertation

Module code: EN7033

Students choose the subject or subject on which their critical dissertation focuses. The idea for the dissertation may arise from material encountered on one of the MA modules, or it may not have been covered on the course, but it must be within the field of modern literature, criticism or theory. Subject and approach are then developed and revised with the help of advice from a supervisor.
