A world leader in research, the School of Geography offers an exciting programme aimed at students who wish to focus primarily on undertaking a research-based masters level qualification. The MA (by Research) is suitable for students with a social science or humanities background.
The programme is ideal for students who wish to experience what it is like to do a PhD without the requirement to undertake three years of study. Students can also opt to take up to 60 credits of postgraduate modules to complement their research activities.
Students receive close support and guidance from two academic supervisors within the school who are related to their area of research. Supervisors meet regularly with students, making sure that they are fully involved in the school's leading research community.
