A Master's by Research (MRes) provides you with the opportunity for you to tailor your studies to your specific research interests or career aspirations, which would be assessed via submission of a thesis and a viva voce. Undertaking an MRes within the field of sociology at BU will allow you to collaborate with world-leading researchers in these areas.

You can set out to find the answer to a particular research question and will have the chance to delve more deeply into a subject area that you are passionate about. We strongly encourage collaboration across specialisms.

Your research project will be developed in collaboration with our academic University staff who will provide you with specialist knowledge and supervisory input, while accessing BU's technical facilties and information resources.

You will also be part of BU's wider postgraduate community and have access to the suite of research, professional and personal training offered through the Doctoral College and your Academic faculty.

The minimum completion time for the full-time course is 12 months with flexibility to take up to 18 months. If you would prefer to complete the course part-time, the minimum completion time is 24 months with flexibility to take up to 36 months to complete.
