HIST9901: Free-Standing Dissertation
A final year student may be allowed to write a 10,000 word free-standing dissertation (30 credits). This can be taken instead of, as well as in addition to, a Special Subject dissertation.
Students wishing to take this option should download the HIST9901 application form from the Undergraduate e-Handbook on Moodle (under Curriculum > Module Selection), and complete it with an outline of the proposed project. The application form should be submitted to the Director of Teaching, Dr Angus Gowland, no later than 01 June 2017.
Applications will only be considered from students who have a majority of marks of at least upper-second class standard on units already taken. The topic of the essay must not overlap significantly with any other module taken by the student.
