Dissertation Philosophy PY3500

A dissertation can be on any topic in philosophy, and producing one allows students the chance to call on their accumulated knowledge of the subject. Most students feel that this module rounds off their degree, giving them a real sense of achievement. It is something we have added to the BA degree as a result of feedback received over the years from students.
