Essays are used as an assessment tool to evaluate your ability to research a topic and construct an argument, as well as your understanding of subject content. This does not mean that essays are a ‘regurgitation’ of everything your lecture has said throughout the course. Essays are your opportunity to explore in greater depth aspects of the course - theories, issues, texts, etc. and in some cases, relate these aspects to a particular context. It is your opportunity to articulate your ideas, but in a certain way: using formal academic style.
