MA - Master of Arts
Studying for an MA or MSc by Research (MbR) can be an excellent opportunity to develop your intellectual skills and your academic interest in a particular field, and to help you stand out from the crowd as a self-motivated, independent thinker. This is distinct from our Taught Masters programmes. The Masters by Research is a completely research focused degree and is awarded on the basis of a thesis (100 pages or 30,000 words). Examiners must be satisfied that all of the research and the thesis was completed within 12 months (24 months part-time).
Students will need at least a UK 2:1 honours degree or equivalent.
