This course is compulsory on the MSc in City Design and Social Science. This course is not available as an outside option.
The independent project enables students to develop an original and extended piece of work on any approved topic within the field of the MSc programme - students are encouraged, but not required, to develop work on themes or sites introduced in their Studio or core courses. The project may focus on a small-scale urban research study or on a practical proposal for urban intervention. Approval for the topic must be obtained from your academic advisor.
In LT students attend a dissertation workshop and then submit a provisional project abstract; academic advisors for the independent project are assigned on the basis of the abstract. In ST, each student has five supervisory meetings with their academic advisor, together with group project workshops and one day of final reviews with members of faculty. Students are also encouraged to consult with other members of faculty during regular office hours.
Students are required to submit one project abstract, and to produce regular formative project work in consultation with their academic advisor.
Project (100%, 10000 words) post-summer term.
