Course Structure

The programme is made up of three stages, each of which, on successful completion, can function as a stand-alone award: a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and the Master of Arts. If you wish to proceed to the next stage you will not normally be awarded with the intermediary awards.

The first stage includes three modules:

Online Research Methods
Research Project Proposal
First Negotiated Module

The second stage builds on the work undertaken and the credits gained for the Post Graduate Certificate. It is made up of two modules. Each module will have been designed by you in conjunction with your mentors as part of your learning contract, to further develop and test your research and communication skills and project-specific knowledge.

The third and final stage is that of the master’s award, which builds on the work undertaken and the credits gained for both the PG Cert and the PG Dip. It consists of a single module – your research project or dissertation. This final module is designed to showcase the skills and knowledge you have developed, and culminates in two assignments – a dissertation or piece of research, and a report or a piece of practical work.

Once you have identified an area of research deemed appropriate for master’s-level research in the Leicester Media School, you will begin to design your programme of study with your mentors (your first and second supervisors). You’ll be able to design a programme where you develop the aims and objectives of study and the assessment criteria by which your work will be judged.

Teaching and assessment

Depending on the focus of your research, the course can be studied online or offline. The minimum, requirement is that you have fortnightly tutorials with your mentor.

A variety of assessments will be used. The first two modules, Research Methods and the Research Project Proposal, have prescribed assessments. Following on from that you can choose how to be assessed, as long as the mode of assessment is appropriate to your research project and the aims and objectives you have set out for the relevant module. All students will be encouraged to present at least one assignment as a conference paper and one as a short article for a peer-reviewed publication.

The online Research Methods module will be assessed through an initial commentary on the range of methods available, and an in-depth analysis of three potential methods that might be used for your project. You will be required to research, test and critically evaluate each of the three methods through their application to a case study relevant to your research.

The Research Project Proposal will be assessed through an initial critical review of literature relevant to your project review; an essay, report or presentation; and supporting presentation or paper identifying the focus of your study and the main case studies you will use. It will culminate in the submission of your learning contract. Your learning contract will outline the detail of what you will be assessed on and how, for each negotiated module and your final independent study.

Contact and learning hours

Supervision hours are 45 hours per year per full time student, 22.5 per part-time student. Self directed study is 145 hours for a 15 credit module, 291 hours per 30 credit module and 590 hours for the 60 credit module.
