American Studies

The course gives you an opportunity to undertake a personalised programme of study in a structured and supportive environment. As a research-led programme it is inherently flexible, tutorials can be scheduled around your other commitments, and meaningful distance learning can be facilitated. Preferably working with your potential supervisor during the application process, you will devise an indepth study of a topic that is driven by your interests. The project may develop from a recent undergraduate encounter with a particular aspect of American studies or you may be returning to education looking for a structured environment in which to formally pursue an established passion.

Entry requirements

A 1st Class or upper 2nd Class Honours degree in American studies or a relevant discipline is required. Holders of other qualifications will be considered individually.

Assessment methods

The course is awarded by dissertation. Supervised by a panel of experienced researchers, you will meet regularly with your 1st supervisor and present your work in progress to the full panel halfway through your registration period. Following advice from this review meeting you will complete the writing up of your 25-30,000 word dissertation.
