You have two assessment options.

Option 1
One coursework essay (3,000 – 4,000 words)

Remember, if you want to take the long essay option, you need to get approval from me. Single Honours students can do up to three long essays across the academic year, and Dual Honours students can do up to two long essays across the academic year. You can find more information about this in the third-year handbook.

MA students
One long essay (4,000 – 6,000 words) or
Two short essays (2,000 – 3,000 words)
Deadline for submitting all essays: 5th June 2017

Suggested essay questions for everyone are here. You can also write on other topics, but you need to get your question approved by me.

I am very happy to read and discuss essay plans and essay drafts for everyone. You can email me to make an appointment or come to my office hours. You can also just knock on my door.

Nearer the essay deadline, I will use doodle poll so that people can book appointments with me outside office hours without endless emailing back and forth.
