We offer a variety of both taught and research postgraduate study options.
Our courses are offered full-time taken in one year or part-time with the workload split over two years.
We welcome and encourage applications for postgraduate degrees by research. In addition to topics focusing on single research areas, we actively encourage interdisciplinary research that cuts across the spectrum of arts studies, or other intellectual disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and beyond. Joint supervision may be provided.
Research degrees can be taken in the following subjects:
- Classics and Ancient History
- English Literature
- History of Art
- Medieval Studies
- Theology and Religious Studies
We foster a vibrant postgraduate community across the Faculty of Arts, providing you with dedicated support when you need it.
School of Humanities subjects are eligible for funding from the AHRC South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership. The Faculty of Arts also offers funding opportunities for taught and research programmes.
See our school research groups for more information on how our research activity is focused within the School of Arts.
We also have a number of exciting interdisciplinary projects available in collaboration with the Cabot Institute MScR in Global Environmental Challenges. Please see below for opportunities, and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any enquiries.
