Women's Studies - MA by Research


Course Description

The MA in Women's Studies by Research is taken full-time over one calendar year. It provides an exciting opportunity for those who already have a particular research interest, and who wish to learn research skills in order to pursue an independent piece of work. The degree has been designed for students who wish to explore a Women's Studies topic in some depth and who already have substantial undergraduate knowledge and expertise in the field.

Stephanie, an MA by Research (and now PhD) student writes:
'My experience of studying an MA (by research) at the Centre for Women's Studies has been fantastic. I found all of the staff to be approachable and helpful in both personal and academic matters. My programme course was very well organised and ran smoothly from start to finish. The department is relaxed and friendly, and provided me with a really supportive environment to complete my research dissertation. I would love to return for a PhD in the near future! '

MA by research

The degree is examined solely via the submission of a 25,000 - 30,000 word dissertation. On the basis of the information included on their application form, each student will be allocated a supervisor who has knowledge relevant to their area of study. It is expected that students will have regular dissertation tutorials with their supervisor, during term time, and that they will regularly prepare written work.

In addition to regular meetings with their dissertation supervisor, students taking this degree will also be required to take the appropriate research training course in Women's Studies, alongside students on either the MA degree or the MA (Humanities) degree.

In certain circumstances, where appropriate and if it will enhance work being undertaken for the dissertation, a student may be required to take a module from the main course, Difference, Diversity & Change, or an option course from the taught MA degree.
