Timeline and Assessment


The MSc is nominally completed in one year of full-time study or two years part-time. In the Autumn term students enroll in the Digital Anthropology core course (and possibly one optional course), followed in the Spring term by the second half of the core course and 2-3 optional courses. The two-hour written exam is administered in the third term (usually in May), and the bulk of dissertation research and writing is conducted between May and August, with submission in mid-September. Those studying part-time are generally restricted to enrollment in the core course in their first year (with the exam in term 3 of that year), while all optional courses and dissertation research/writing occur in the second year. Fees for part-time study are typically half the fees of full-time study in any given year. According to the 2012/13 academic calendar (PDF), the term schedule is as follows:

Term 1: 24 Sep 12 - 14 Dec 12
Term 2: 7 Jan 13 - 22 Mar 13
Term 3: 22 Apr 13 - 07 Jun 13
