Flexibility and choice
The MRes Humanities differs from other taught masters programmes because of its strong emphasis on research methods and skills. It will appeal to students seeking a greater degree of independence in their studies and who relish the challenge of intellectual rigour and self-development.
The MRes can be taken as a full Masters programme, a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanities or a named subject, or a Postgraduate Certificate in Humanities. At the Postgraduate Diploma and Masters level, it may be appropriate to add a named award reflecting your subject specialism, such as MRes in Humanities (Film Studies) or PGDip in Humanities (Liberal Arts).
The full Masters programme culminates in a dissertation or negotiated project in which you will pursue substantive independent research into a subject of your choice. This will either be through a more traditional postgraduate dissertation or through a negotiated research-based project which might involve different forms of assessment and scholarly activities.
