Students will develop, in consultation with a supervisor, a focused research project in an aspect of German Studies: German literature, linguistics, critical theory, textual theory, cinema studies, cultural studies or civilisation. Students will produce a sustained piece of commentary that engages with an academic method (such as historical method, survey reading, close analysis, theoretical critique or a combination of these) to answer a discipline-specific question and formulate a thesis. The dissertation will demonstrate a command of methodology, a close knowledge of the texts or issues studied, a high degree of competence in appropriate academic discourses in German.


Written thesis (9000 words): 100%
The dissertation can be written either in German or in English.
