Ashleigh Angus, Bachelor of Arts (Honours) graduate
My Honours year was essentially a condensed version of my current PhD project – I am producing an exegesis and historical fiction novel that explores the testimonies of accused witches from Orkney, Scotland, during the 17th century. The degree taught me how to research and construct an argument in a short period of time. Throughout my Honours year I also learnt how to answer a single research question in two ways: through a miniature thesis and a creative project.
