The MA by Research programme requires you to prepare a dissertation of up to 40,000 words on a topic of your choice, for which an academic staff member will provide expert supervision. Our internationally recognised research ranges from the medieval to the contemporary period, focusing on the 18th century and after, with the preponderance in the 20th century. Postgraduate research is pursued in its broadest social and intellectual context, and you develop your research project within an active and friendly postgraduate community. Postgraduates are offered opportunities to present work-in-progress at Departmental Research Seminars, the School Postgraduate Forum, and relevant Postgraduate conferences hosted at the University.
