This module enables St Andrews students on Study Abroad schemes to carry out a substantial piece of work on a topic essentially of their own choice, under the joint supervision of one member of staff at the host institution and another in St Andrews. It is particularly intended for use in institutions where the language of instruction is not English and a language barrier would otherwise prevent the student from studying there successfully. The dissertation will be written in English and may relate to any aspect of Latin literature or life in ancient Rome, provided that the study of Latin texts is involved. The topic must be approved by the Dissertations Co-ordinator and Honours Adviser/Study Abroad Co-ordinator in Classics. The dissertation will be completed over one semester and will be marked by staff in St Andrews.
