Critical Theory

While this degree is still classed as a research preparation Master's, it is assessed solely by dissertation and is taught predominantly via supervision. Students attend research training sessions and attend the weekly graduate work-in-progress seminars to which they contribute a paper in semester 2. However, they work with a main supervisor and co-supervisor on a pre-agreed research topic. They submit a 30,000-word dissertation at the end of the year which is marked by both an internal and an external examiner with the possibility of a viva to confirm the award.
