HONS28002 - Debates in the Discipline

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Debates in the Discipline is the second of the two coursework units in the BA Honours course. The two coursework units provide discipline-context research training for the two subsequent dissertation units. You will acquire advanced research skills in your chosen discipline. Particulars of the learning materials and assessment will be negotiated with relevant staff in the academic discipline. You will engage with the trends, debates and gaps in the literature relevant to a specific Humanities or Arts discipline. In some cases, the output from this unit will be a guided literature review – for others, a guided reflection on creating an artefact creation accompanied by an exegesis or another discipline-specific document.
