A Master of Arts research degree enables a candidate to undertake a program of research and advanced study in a specialist field. The research takes place over 2 years of study or equivalent part-time and normally results in a thesis or equivalent of traditionally circa 50-60,000 words (depending on the discipline), written in English. Masters degrees in the Faculty of Arts are available in all Schools in the Faculty, across many wide ranging discipline areas:
Asian languages and studies
The research topic will reflect the candidates' own interests and the research expertise of their supervisors. Further information on the research areas of supervisors in these disciplines is available from the Web Access Research Portal (WARP) site.
The campus of study will vary depending on the location of the candidate, the supervisor and the research field.
A Master of Arts degree can provide entry to a doctoral program at a university, and graduates are also highly sought after for positions across the spectrum of available careers. Master of Arts graduates take up roles in areas such as education, management, journalism, public policy, human resources, marketing and criminology.
