Considering a taught Masters degree?

The main taught Masters programme available in the College is an MA (Master of Arts).  Students in our Archaeology department can also take an MSc (Master of Science) and in our History and Modern Languages departments an MRes (Master of Research).

An outline of these different taught Masters degrees can be found on the University's central web pages.

A taught Masters degree normally involves following a series of taught modules for which you would normally be required to attend lectures/seminars in terms one and two, with term three being reserved solely for the completion of the dissertation (normally c.25,000 words).
