The MRes in Humanities offers students the opportunity to produce a substantial piece of independent research and writing, and to undertake wide-ranging, systematic training in research skills and project management. Students will write a dissertation in a specific field or prepare a portfolio of compositions, recital or a media project with a named supervisor.
Supervision is available in all disciplines where the Research Institute has expertise: American Studies; English; History; Local History; Media, Communications and Culture; Medical Humanities; Music and Music Technology; Russian and Victorian Studies. You will be able to develop your research topic within the context of current debates and methodologies in relevant disciplines, and within the humanities generally.
There are opportunities for interdisciplinary study, for example in Medical Humanities, Victorian Studies and Studies in Early Modern England. The course thus will develop practical, critical and analytical research skills that can be deployed in a variety of professional and intellectual contexts. The programme is tailored to your research and career plans, and we recommend that you contact us before making a formal application.
