This course gives students the opportunity to pursue an individual research project usually in the form of an extended essay, up to 10,000 words, with regular guidance and support from a supervisor. Practical and creative work may be included as part of a research project. A research project is a mandatory part of an Honours degree in English. Students wishing to enrol for the BA(Hons) degree may consult with academic staff to discuss their areas of interest and must contact the Honours Co-ordinator with a brief outline of their intended topic, at least two weeks prior to the final date for enrolment. Students wishing to include practical work will also need to discuss the resource implications before they enrol. Note: assessment for ENGL 489 research essays or projects may often be based wholly on the completed essay or project. Alternatively, individual supervisors may allocate a portion of the final grade for work to be completed at set milestones throughout the period of enrolment. 100% internal assessment.
