Post 6: Dissertation Rationale

Project Rationale Brief

The project rationale is a detailed plan from which to write the final dissertation and should define the subject area, line of inquiry, and outline the essay structure. It should state the intentions of the essay and summarise key arguments to be explored. It should also include the working title, an abstract/summary of proposed essay with a brief definition of the research theme, scope, aims and objectives, research methods and essay plan.

  • 500 words (+/- 10% leeway)

  • Module weighting - formative only

  • Abstract + aims + essay structure

  • Include bibliography including any evidence of research links (eg blog) — note bibliography is not counted as part of the 500 wds.

  • Deadline: Friday 29th October 2021


Here is the rough version of my rationale with feedback.
