You will be assessed through a mixture of examinations, coursework, presentations and a learning journal. The taught element of the course is then complemented by a substantial piece of research leading to the completion of a dissertation.
Part-time distance learning will allow you the flexibility to take control of your own learning and balance study with professional and personal obligations.
This course adopts a transdisciplinary approach to teaching meaning you'll learn through lectures, case studies, guest lectures, group activities, presentations and online learning materials.
Applying yourself to two modules per term, combined with the final dissertation, will allow you to complete the course in the recommended two year period. However you are able to spread your study over a maximum of five years, affording you the opportunity to study at a slower pace or take breaks where necessary.
The course is designed to cater for distance learners and is supported online with a sophisticated Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), with each module being designed specifically to cater for the needs of online distance learners.
