Independent Study Module Description (15)
Dissertation - Independent Study (FCH3888B)
Independent Study is basically the same as a final-year departmental dissertation. Most FCH students take departmental dissertations, but you may find the potentially greater flexibility offered by Independent Study more suitable for what you would like to do. It will develop your ability to define a field of enquiry and undertake a sustained period of research into it. It will encourage the application of knowledge, principles and skills of enquiry. The form of submission can be a ‘traditional’ written dissertation or an appropriate combination of written and practical elements. The Independent Study can be about a specific area of one of your subjects, or look at something that 'overarches' them. The module is well-suited to interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies.
