Dissertation (60 credits)

Dissertation support will be provided in Semester 2. Students will work independently on their dissertations during the summer (supervision until the end of June and submitted in September). 

Please note

Not all options will be available every year, and not all options will run if there is insufficient demand. In order to keep class sizes small, enrolement in all options is limited and so first choices cannot be guaranteed. 

Inter-departmental Modules

It is possible to take certain MA modules (20 credits) in programmes and departments outside the Department of Digital Humanities but which still count towards the degree and we encourage this, where appropriate.

You are limited to selecting one module (20 credits) from outside the programme. Please see this page on Inter-departmental MA Modules for further details.

 

The modules run in each academic year are subject to change in line with staff availability and student demand so there is no guarantee every module will run. Module descriptions and information may vary depending between years.
