Postgraduate taught study

Postgraduate taught study

The College of Arts offers a vast range of postgraduate taught programmes, developed and delivered by experts in their field. Our taught degrees usually last for one year (full-time). Our programmes provide an opportunity to extend your existing knowledge of a subject, to engage with a new subject area, or to work across subject areas in an interdisciplinary programme. 

Our taught degrees in the College of Arts are titled Master of Letters (MLitt) or Master of Science (MSc). Irrespective of their designation, all are delivered through a range of structured classroom and seminar activities, led by academic members of staff, many of whom are world-leaders in their field. These activities run alongside more independent but supervised (typically one-to-one) learning experiences.

Our Masters programmes introduce you to a range of professional skills, equipping you for the challenges of the job market as well as for PhD study. Our Careers Service offers tailored and individual support for our postgraduate students, while our close connection to and partnerships with many organisations in the city provide a range of internship and work placement opportunities.
