Modules

You should discuss your initial ideas for a MA by research topic with a suitable supervisor from the programme team in the area of your study. If you are unsure, please contact Dr Maria Diemling, the Subject Lead in Theology and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics, who will be able to advise you whom to contact. Your research topic may develop from a recent undergraduate encounter with a particular aspect of Theology or Religion, Philosophy and Ethics or you may be returning to education looking for a structured environment in which to formally pursue an established passion.

Assessment method

Students will write a research thesis on their chosen topic. For an MA by Research students will need to demonstrate critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights, much of which is at the forefront of their own academic discipline. The length of the Masters by Research thesis excluding bibliography and appendices, but including footnotes, is 25,000-30,000 words. How will I be assessed? The MA by research will be assessed by dissertation. The examination will be done by an internal and an external examiner and might include a viva voce examinatio


Entry requirements

For an MA by Research we normally expect an Upper Second or First Class BA (hons) degree (or equivalent) in Theology and/or Religious Studies or a cognate relevant area.
