You select a topic, in consultation with a prospective supervisor, and over the course of a year’s full-time registration, you gather materials, read reference works you have located yourself or which have been recommended to you by your supervisor, hone your thoughts and your focus, and in the end, produce a thesis of about 30,000 words in length. You can write in English, Spanish or Portuguese
