Cynnwys cwrs

The dissertation in Music in the Community is an independent piece of writing focusing on some area of music in the community. It may be the only dissertation you are writing, or it may be a second dissertation in a contrasting area to your longer main dissertation. The dissertation in Music in the Community may be a self-contained study focusing on a set topic (such as an aspect of music therapy), or it may involve a practical element, such as market research undertaken on behalf of an Arts Centre or Festival, with a view to producing a series of recommendations on policy. In many cases the project will follow on from skills learned or small-scale projects undertaken during one of the pre-requisite modules (Arts Administration and/or Music in the Community). The topic will be selected by the student in consultation with a member of staff and approved by the Board of Examiners in the normal manner. This selection and approval takes place in the summer term immediately preceding Year 3. The writing should take account of previous and current relevant research but demonstrate originality of mind in approach and argument. Credit will be given for quality of ideas, clarity and logic of argument and presentation, suitability of bibliography, and elegance of presentation.
