Course content

This course is largely by self-directed study. You will need to complete a research methods module and a dissertation.

The research methods module will involve your attendance at three day schools at UCLan. These day schools are designed to develop your understanding of method and methodology. Two of the days will be at the start of the course in late September and the third day is in early November as a follow up to the first two assignments.

For your dissertation you must have your proposal agreed by your tutor. The proposal is informed by the research methods day schools. You will then be largely self-directed in your studies with support from both a tutor and a learning set. You will discuss your dissertation progress with your learning set colleagues and you will also have the opportunity of one to one meetings with your tutor.
