What is an MA by Research?
An MA by Research is a Master of Arts research degree. MA by Research is a very intensive one-year (full-time) or two year (part-time) research programme leading to a 30,000-word written thesis. Given the intensity of this mode of research, students are expected to have a very well-defined research proposal and a clear work plan at the outset. York St John University has considerable experience of MA by research supervision and we welcome applications from suitable candidates across a wide range of disciplines.
We offer MA by Research in the School of Art, Design & Computer Science; York Business School; School of Education; School of Humanities, Religion & Philosophy; School of Languages & Linguistics; and the School of Performance & Media Production.
