If you have a longstanding interest or connections in a particular sociological or social policy field, possibly related to your occupation or other significant experience, then an MA by Research may provide the ideal scope and flexibility for your research project.
This type of research study works through close one-to-one supervision, tailored specifically to the needs of the project and the researcher.
You will research and write a thesis of approximately 30,000 words on a subject of your choice. The School offers no broad research training for candidates that register for this degree.
MA by Research candidates are not eligible for transfer to MPhil or PhD.
