The Course

The Geography MA by Research programme provides you with the opportunity to extend your undergraduate degree and develop your expertise in a particular area of Geography.

You will have the chance to specialise in an area of particular interest to you and consolidate your skills in preparation for positions in research development or technology management.

Research Areas, Projects & Topics

The School is developing research strengths in national and international migration, rural development, the spatial dimension of social and technological innovations, and the analysis and mapping of a range of economic and social inequalities from international to sub-regional scales.

How You Study

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. In addition to this, you are strongly encouraged to attend School seminar and guest speaker events and engage in a range of research and skills training opportunities in support of your studies.

You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however, the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

The MA by Research involves writing a Master's thesis under the supervision of a member of academic staff on a topic to be agreed with your supervisor. The MA by Research is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic.
