NAMS3001 Interdisciplinary Project 10 op
North American Studies
Janne Korkka, Department of English, Rosetta
Edeltävät opinnot
Extensive studies in or highly relevant to North American Studies: usually approximately 50 op (50 ECTS credits).


By completing this Project, the student (or students, in the case of a joint Project) demonstrate their ability to define a coherent and feasible research project, within the frame of reference of North American Studies, which can be insightfully approached from the perspective of more than one intersecting scholarly or scientific disciplines. They are expected to carry out both the design and the execution of the research project essentially independently, ie: to identify a feasible interdisciplinary project, to set out its research design clearly and convincingly, to identify what sources they will need to use for their data and other information and to use and evaluate these sources critically, to implement the research design, and to write a clear and coherent research report on their findings.


For this project, intended for persons who already have a wide background in North American Studies, students propose a North American research topic of their own choice which involves a multidisciplinary approach. Group projects, involving more than one student, are warmly encouraged.
Obligatory for students completing the Intermediate Level (25+35 op) in North American Studies.
