Course content

Students who are qualified and able to embark directly upon a one-year research programme can be registered for an MA (by research), in Conservation Studies. Students register for 12 months full time or part time over two years. Please read the University guidelines for MA by Research.

Students are assigned to an academic supervisor and are also supported and monitored by a Thesis Advisory Panel, which is composed of the supervisor and a Chair, the latter usually a member of staff with cognate interests.

The degree is awarded on the basis of satisfactory submission of a thesis of no more than 30,000 words.

The thesis should demonstrate an ability to investigate a chosen topic critically and with intellectual enterprise, and to set this within a general understanding of the relevant primary and secondary sources. The thesis should meet the standards of presentation, illustration, and documentation expected in the profession.
