The University of Sunderland offers Taught Masters and Research Degrees for postgraduate study.
Our research has been classed as ‘world leading’ in 10 subjects by the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008).
All our research programmes are designed to develop deeper understanding through original investigation and to generate new knowledge.
A taught Masters degree (normally an MA, MSc or MEd) is an award granted on the basis of an individually initiated and registered research programme.
The programme is built around a supervised thesis on a substantial piece of work, which may need to show evidence of originality and contain material worthy of publication. It also involves an element of research training through generic courses and taught modules and/or courses.
