Course Description

The dissertation is the culmination of the MA in Art History and tests the student’s ability to present a sustained academic argument in clear, logical text. The student will develop the write up from his/her own original and academically sound topic that was chosen and proposed in the previous semesters. Students will not necessarily make an original contribution to scholarly knowledge but must demonstrate a reasonable grasp of work done in the subject area, with a thorough survey of relevant literature. The instructor(s) and supervisor(s) will help the student decide on the focus of the thesis/ dissertation, which will be periodically supervised and approved before submitted for marking.
