The Master of Arts is made up of postgraduate courses that extend and deepen students´ existing skills, knowledge and understanding in professionally relevant fields of study, as well as teaching advanced skills in research and analytical thinking. It is equally suitable for people wishing to switch to an academic or professional field different from the one they studied at undergraduate level. The MA can serve as a pathway to higher degree research for students who have not completed a four year BA(Honours) with a research component in the relevant area of study.
