Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

An MA by Research in Welsh enables you to undertake a substantial project rooted in your own Welsh passions and interests.

It offers you a respected MA qualification in specialist areas where taught programmes are not offered, and gives the experience of a substantial research degree, without committing to a PhD.

Your project will take one year full-time or two years part-time.

You will submit a thesis of up to 40,000 words, demonstrating original research with a significant contribution to the subject. This is followed by an oral examination of the thesis (a viva voce examination, or viva).

Completing the programme can present a pathway to a career in academia, or widen your scope for employment in fields such as education, government bodies or the private sector.

The Research Excellence Framework 2014 adjudged that 100% of the Welsh Department's research work was of a world-class standard or better, and that 69% of the work submitted was of international standard or world-leading. This is the best result among Welsh departments that presented their work individually to the research survey.

You will be closely supervised by two experienced academics with relevant expertise throughout the course of the project. This involves fortnightly meetings in your first term and meetings at regular agreed intervals thereafter.

As a research student, you are required to attend skills and training courses. You deliver presentations to research students and staff at departmental seminars, at the annual departmental postgraduate symposium in June, and at the College of Arts and Humanities Postgraduate conference.
