Course Summary

Overview

The Master of Research in Humanities offers you the opportunity to pursue a personalised, tailor-made programme of Masters study in a structured, interdisciplinary and research-driven environment. It’s focused on your interests, and is available across a broad range of disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. You’ll undertake an extended piece of research within a programme of study designed together between you and your supervisor(s). The MRes can be pursued for personal or career development, or as a stepping-stone to doctoral study (PhD).

The MRes is a one-year, research-oriented taught course. You’re allocated a supervisor or supervisors, and together you’ll plan a curriculum that reflects your interests and needs. Much of your work is made up of self-directed research, with scheduled supervisory meetings to help guide you, discuss your work and review draft submissions. You’ll will have a different array of learning opportunities that complement your research project. Students can also exit with PGCert awards.
