Degree Thesis                                                          Advanced level, 15 ECTS (10 points)



The aim of this course is to enable the student to write a scholarly thesis on Irish literature. The student is encouraged to explore a research question of special interest, which may or may not be related to previous course work. Under the direction of a supervisor, the student is expected to work independently in collecting, selecting and presenting primary and secondary source material, and writing a well-organised literary analysis of 6000 7500 words (20-25 pages).


This course is one of the modules in the Masters Programme. It can also be read as a separate course outside the programme, but students taking this course are required to take at least one C-level (advanced) theory course within their area of specialisation.
