Master’s students gain transferable skills which are valued highly by employers in a range of non-academic fields. For example, our graduates have the ability to carry out independent research, and to present clear written and oral arguments.

Our graduates have gone on to careers in politics, the media, the civil service, advertising, journalism, law, the police, retail, management, and a wide variety of other professions.

Our MRes students also finish the programme well prepared for PhD research. Recent master’s students have gone on to do PhDs at Reading, and at other excellent institutions in the UK, US and elsewhere.
