    Is your adviser helpful. I found our staff to be cold and unhelpful. They seemed to want something in their own specialised area and not anything to do with the core subject, ie Environmental Science
    When I did my dissertation, I chose a topic based on the staff member offering a really exciting research trip to gather data- so it was a very specialist topic. I do think most staff members would rather supervise something closely related to their own area of expertise- if nothing else, they probably feel more able to make suggestions and mark these dissertations.

    Have you proposed a topic to your supervisor that they didn't like? Did they give you any feedback as to why it wasn't suitable?

    Hi !

    This is a wonderful thread, I am totally new to this, but to see this is fab!
    I am currently doing my Msc - Applied Social Research, I have just had my suporvisor meeting and I have decided to analyse the ''normalisation'' of drugs! - Still undecided of the exact drug I want to focus on - I quite like the idea of cognitive enhancing drugs in students!

    But hey everyone - I completed my undergrad dissertation on whether or not there was a gender disparity in Magistrates courts - I enjoyed that!

    I'm currently doing the literature review for mine but I'm struggling on how to write it I've found papers/journals to reference but I'm not sure if I'm writing about them correctly.

    Hello! When I did my undergrad dissertation, when I did my literature review I split it into three sections - those that were for my assumptions, those that were against and neutral.

    What do you mean you were only given three days? Surely you knew you'd have a dissertation to do during your degree? Weren't you thinking about possible topics throughout?

    Thanks for trying at least :L

    I wasn't allowed to change/modify any of the 5 questionnaires I chose to use for the study, so some questions aren't phrased as I would have liked, but the questionnaires used are reliable and valid, and I suppose that is what counts

    Hey guys, my deadline for submitting my proposal is early February. I'm actually really excited about my topic, and I desperately hope it gets approved! It's going to be a cognitive poetic analysis of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, looking in particular at how the use of cohesive threads and deictic references positions us in the mind of a character with Asperger's syndrome.

    Now it's just a case of turning my vague idea into a proposal that makes sense!

    This sounds like an interesting subject :woo: You might need more focus in the title though? In what ways do you think technology is affecting creativity?
