This subject offers students the opportunity to demonstrate an advanced understanding of a topic area in Information Studies though the writing of an extended essay with a view to possible publication. Students select a topic from a wide-ranging list, and, under the supervision of a lecturer, but working independently, devise an essay title, draft an applicable, annotated bibliography, and then submit a 5,000-word composition that critically addresses the relevant theoretical and practical issues, with reference to the literature.
