This module will allow the students to conduct independent research and creative practice on a topic chosen and produced in consultation with an academic supervisor. The research topic and the format of the dissertation/project will be relevant to areas the student has pursued in taught components of the MA programme. Students will produce either a written or practice-based thesis. The written dissertation should be 12,000 to 16,000 words and the practice thesis should consist of the artefact or performance/installation with an accompanying 6,000-8,000 word dissertation serving as a critical and theorised analysis of the practice project. Students will also be exposed to leading research in the field through attendance at the departmental seminar series and will undertake workshops throughout the year to develop their research project.
