The research-intense and independent nature of the Masters in Research in Anthropology will appeal to students seeking entry in to a PhD programme or a professional research role. Designed for students with a strong background in anthropology, this course trains them in research design and social science or biological methodologies in preparation for an independent research project. The emphasis on research training prepares students to design pilot studies, conduct fieldwork and write dissertations based on one's own research. Students may find that completion of this masters can shorten the process to upgrade from MPhil to PhD status (see the MPhil/PhD programme here), or launch them into a career in professional research.
