In year 1, students will be registered as taught postgraduates. Like MA students, they will study 5 modules: 3 optional 30-credit modules, and 2 core modules, and a short dissertation.

Entry requirements

Normally a good 2.1 Honours degree in a relevant subject, plus an indication of the proposed research area; English language requirements include an IELTS of 7.0 or equivalent, with no band below 6.5.

Course modules

Core modules: resources, methods and interpretation; dissertation.

Assessment methods

The 2 core modules will be assessed to a higher threshold than for the standard MA. Students will be required to produce a 2000-word research proposal for their doctoral thesis, with the course culminating with the submission of a 100,000-word thesis.
