Taught Master’s programmes are offered by the Department through two pathways, a Specialist (S) and a research training/preparation (RT or RP) pathway. The Specialist pathway is the traditional Master’s degree which offers the opportunity to specialise on a particular area of the discipline. The Research Training/Preparation pathway is designed to emphasise social science research training as well as specialist provision, and is likely to be of most interest to students who have already studied extensively in that particular subject area and who are planning to undertake a PhD following the completion of their Master’s course.
Our admissions team can provide applicants with guidance on the relative merits of each pathway according to their specific needs.
