The Master of Research is a pioneering postgraduate research degree offered across all Schools at The Glasgow School of Art (GSA). It offers students a unique opportunity to design and undertake a research project, which is either practice-based or theoretical.
The programme is offered at GSA’s Campus in Glasgow, The GSA Creative Campus Highlands & Islands or across both Campuses. The Master of Research prepares students for doctoral study and offers the potential for eligible students to apply to convert to a PhD at Year 2 (FT). It is available full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 years).
The Master of Research is suited to students who wish a dedicated space to continue a research project or to creative practitioners who wish to develop their research practice in a specific context. Student’s creative practice is the focus of the iterative research approach and is a major aspect of its experiential nature. This involves exploring creative practice through critical inquiry: making, reading, writing, thinking, discussion and reflection.
