University of York
History of Art (with an element of Research)
This degree is designed for students who have already identified a specific research topic and who wish to focus exclusively on writing a thesis, working with a particular supervisor in our department. The dissertation is the sole component of this degree; there is no taught element. It is read by one external and one internal examiner. The external is an expert in the field in which the dissertation is written.
Prior to making an application, applicants are expected to contact potential supervisors at the university to discuss the topic. Possible requirements, written work or request a meeting with the applicant either prior to or after a formal application. The most important aspect of the research degree application is the research proposal of around 350 words.
The MA by Dissertation consists of a 30,000-word thesis, researched and written over a period of 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
