Overview Overview

The aim of this module is to develop studentsí independent research methods in philosophy and to deepen their critical awareness and writing ability on a significant topic in philosophy. The module requires students to select: (a) a significant topic of research for a Minor MA thesis in philosophy; (b) think this topic through; and (c) present it (c. 12,000 words) adhering to normal academic-scholarly written conventions. Appointment of supervisors for each studentís thesis-topic proposal will follow upon a consideration and review of the thesesí proposals that have been submitted to the Department of Philosophy and as approved by the Head of the Department. Revision and refinement of thesesí proposals are necessary, and such will be conducted, in due course over the first semester, between appointed supervisor and student. It is the responsibility of both supervisor and supervisee to arrange and fix appointment times during both the First and Second Semesters, and to discuss the progress, or lack of progress made in the researching and in the writing of the thesis. The format of the dissertation must conform to the guidelines set out in the Departmental Handbook for Students and the Universityís Submission Procedures.
