2. Literature Review (approx. 1,200 words). Provide an overview of the general area of your study, that is an informative literature review that would summarise the current state of knowledge and recent debates on the topic of your interest.

3. Methodology (approx. 1,000 words). In this part of your work you should: a) outline your Research Question(s) and b) describe your methodological approach.

You will also explain what method of data collection is suitable for your study and why? As well as how do you plan to analyse your data and how is this going to help you address your research question(s).
4. Conclusion/Summary (approx. 500 words). Conclude with a summary of your proposed research project. In this section you should also reflect on possible limitations of your study and any other issues that you might face during the process of collecting and analysing your data as well as writing up your final thesis.
In addition to the criteria outlined above, you are expected to demonstrate:
1. in-depth knowledge and understanding of the relevant literature and competence in identifying the relevant concepts and theories that are relevant to the topic of your interest.
2. understanding of the different methodologies, clear articulation of your chosen methodological approach and a critical reflection of the methodological issues underpinning your study.
