Research Masters

An MA by Research allows an extended engagement with your research question and body of evidence. Over a 12-month programme you work towards a larger dissertation (up to 50,000 words) under the guidance of an expert supervisory team. Ideal for an already worked up idea the MA by Research is a rewarding process and excellent as preparation for further study or for a discreet investigation.

  • MLitt Master of Letters - 2 years / 4 years
