In consultation with a supervisor, a focused research project is developed in an aspect of German Studies: German literature, linguistics, critical theory, textual theory, cinema studies, cultural studies or civilisation. Students produce a sustained piece of commentary that engages with an academic method (eg. 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 (written either in German or English) 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.
