4. engage in self-directed, degree-level research on a topic of the student’s choosing;
5. communicate their work in written English of degree level to academic and non-specialist audiences.
Omschrijving During this course, students will be supervised while undertaking independent research in preparation for a BA thesis in Modern Literature in English. The initial part of the course will consist of lectures and seminars that introduce students to the manner in which a successful thesis is prepared. Most of the course will be dedicated to independent study and research in the student’s chosen field. This will be carried out under the supervision of an allocated member of staff.

Modern Literature theses can be written on texts from c. 1550 and the present.
