Description

Advertisement

This programme offers advanced-level training to students who normally already have an undergraduate or MA degree in Anthropology.

It provides you with a wide range of generic training in social science research methods, and in-depth training in anthropological methods and research issues.

Close supervision enables you to focus on your own research and helps tailor the generic training to the individual proposal being developed.

The MRes is designed to serve as the first (training) year of a research degree (MPhil/PhD) for those starting MPhil/PhD studies at Goldsmiths, although it can also be taken as a stand-alone programme.

The programme includes research design; research methods (quantitative and qualitative); optional language training, and a dissertation, which prepares the ground for fieldwork or other data-gathering.

It includes a detailed account of your proposed research, and analysis of relevant theoretical and regional literature.

Assessment: Dissertation; Reports

Contents

In the week before the beginning of the academic year in mid-September there is an Induction Programme for all new research postgraduates at Goldsmiths. You will be introduced to College and Departmental facilities and procedures, and attend workshops on what is involved in doing a research degree.

The MRes is a training year, in which work on your own research project is coupled with general training in Anthropological and Social Science Methods - run both within the Department and by the Goldsmiths College Research Office - as follows:

* Methods in Anthropological Research (20 weeks x 2 hrs)
* Research Design (20 weeks x 2.5 hrs)
* Visual Practice in Anthropology
* Department of Anthropology Research Seminar

You may also take other modules depending on your specific training needs, such as learning a language, or auditing an MA course, either in the Department or elsewhere, of particular relevance to your research project. You are also encouraged to attend seminars in other parts of the University of London, attend conferences, and go on outside modules such as those organised by GAPP (Group for Anthropology in Policy and Practice). There are Departmental funds to enable you to attend such events.

At the end of the year, MRes students present a 15,000-word dissertation in September, which discusses in depth their proposed research topic and the relevant literature.

Requirements

Most direct entrants to the MRes or MPhil already have a first degree or an MA in Social Anthropology. If you don't have this, you should normally do an MA, or you may be able to take a qualifying year conversion course.

There is little difference between the taught Masters and the qualifying year, except that the qualifying year is not a qualification in itself and involves no dissertation. If you achieve the required standard, you can apply to register for the MRes or MPhil/PhD.

English language

If your first language isn't English, you need to demonstrate the required level of English language competence to enrol on our programmes.
