Our English Masters by Research is a one year independent study programme, which is especially attractive to students who already know they want to study for a PhD and have a clear sense of their research interests.
The MA is an opportunity to ‘pilot’ this research and undertake essential preparatory research methodology training (as required by the Arts and Humanities Research Council). Students may choose to pursue an MA by Research in any area of Literary Studies providing a suitable supervisor is available.
Tuition is through one-to-one supervision plus attendance on the Department’s Research Methodologies programme.
