The MA by Research in Politics (Cornwall) has been developed to allow you to undertake a 12-month research project in an area of interest to you. The flexibility of the programme allows students to transfer to an MPhil or PhD programme at a later stage. The programme is not only an appropriate route for transfer to MPhil and, after successful upgrading, to PhD, it also provides clear evidence to employers (whether professional or academic) that you are able to conduct in-depth and original research within a prescribe timescale.
The award of MA by Research in Politics (Cornwall) is ideal if you wish to research an area of interest within a 12 month period. The research will be closely supervised and related to the research interests of a member of staff in the Politics Penryn team.
