Master of Arts (By Research)

Overview

Enhance communication of ideas and skills, management and entrepreneurial skills through collaboration and innovation.

The Master of Arts (MA) is a research-based program, designed to meet the needs of students who would like to extend their specialisation in the areas of humanities and social sciences, beyond their undergraduate degree.

Students who wish to embark on their research interests through their postgraduate studies are often limited by the program structure designed by academic institutions. The MA offers students the flexibility of choosing their specialisation according to their research interests and career aspirations. Learning is done through consultation with the academic research supervisor.

As a research-based programme, the MA enables students to critically analyse a problem, design a solution (or make a discovery) and implement the solution. In that process, students would collaborate and innovate. The program also ensures students enhance their communication of ideas and skills, techniques and management, as well as entrepreneurial skills, all of which are beneficial to practices in the marketplace as well as academic field.

Students who wish to embark on their research interests through their postgraduate studies are often limited by the programme structure designed by academic institutions. The MA offers students the flexibility of choosing their specialisation according to their research interests and career aspirations.

Students who are highly independent in learning, committed to excel, and ambitious in their career progressions are strongly recommended for the MA.
