Arts & Humanities taught postgraduate courses
The Faculty of Arts & Humanities offer one-year Masters programmes combining
taught and research elements which amount to 180 credits.
- A core module (30 credits) in Research Methods (compulsory in all departments)
- A core module (30 credits) in “Issues” (required by some programmes)
- A number of optional modules (normally taught in seminars and assessed by essays)
- A dissertation (normally worth 60, 90, or 120 credits) involving independent research supported by supervisory sessions
University Regulations:The University regulations permit MA students to take at least one module in a different department, and students can choose from a wide range of MA programmes within the Faculty. For example: the interdisciplinary MAs hosted by the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (MA Medieval and Renaissance Studies and an MA Visual Arts & Culture) offer MA students exceptional flexibility with their study.
The Department of Philosophy and the Department of Theology & Religion also offer Graduate Diplomas for applicants who hold an undergraduate degree in another discipline. This is a good opportunity for students who want to gain knowledge of a new discipline at a level which would permit them to undertake further study in the subject (e.g. at Masters level).
