Overview

The Master of Research in Humanities offers you the opportunity to pursue a personalised, tailor-made programme of Masters study in a structured, interdisciplinary and research-driven environment. It’s focused on your interests, and is available across a broad range of disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. For example, if you are interested in The Gothic Imagination or Scottish Literature the MRes Humanities is a great option to study some of these topics. You’ll undertake an extended piece of research within a programme of study designed together between you and your supervisor(s). The MRes can be pursued for personal or career development, or as a stepping-stone to doctoral study (PhD).

The MRes is a one-year, research-oriented taught course. You’re allocated a supervisor or supervisors, and together you’ll plan a curriculum that reflects your interests and needs. Much of your work is made up of self-directed research, with scheduled supervisory meetings to help guide you, discuss your work and review draft submissions. You’ll will have a different array of learning opportunities that complement your research project.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities welcomes students from all backgrounds, and has a longstanding tradition of supporting innovative, cross-disciplinary and forward-looking projects. Our research student community is international, diverse and plays a key role in the research culture of the Faculty, with staff and students working together on new initiatives. Students in Arts and Humanities can participate in the wider culture of the University through the Institute for Advanced Studies.

Career opportunities

This postgraduate degree will help you to gain the skills for future research work at the doctoral level, and give you necessary training in and insight into the research environment of Higher Education. If academia is not your professional goal, this MRes has a strong interdisciplinary emphasis that will open up a wide range of fascinating and exciting career possibilities. The skills you will develop here become immensely transferable in a market awaiting highly competent and highly innovative thinkers and leaders.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities works closely with a wide variety of local and national employers and community organisations. This means students have access to a variety of work-related networks.
