Masters multi-disciplinary dissertation:education, childhood and youth

Studying E822 completes the MA qualification by conducting dissertation study in one of two forms. The focus for the dissertation will be negotiated with tutor support early in the module to ensure that it's relevant to the qualification you're studying towards. The research can then be carried out either as a small-scale investigation, which will involve data collection in a relevant setting, or as an extended proposal, which will build a research design to form a proposal from an extended analysis of relevant literature. Either form of dissertation has the potential to inform practice and/or further enquiry, including doctoral study.
