Program description

Master of Philosophy

If you’d like to develop specialist skills in communications and media, criminal justice and criminology, international studies, philosophy or sociology, our purpose built Master of Philosophy (MPhil) offered at IIE MSA is just what you’re looking for.

The MPhil has been developed to correspond with the strengths of our threeclusters. As part of this program you’ll be teamed with a leading researcher who’ll act as your supervisor and sounding board while you undertake your major thesis.

All streams of specialization are 100 percent research – meaning no requisite coursework modules and total flexibility – tailor your research and study to suit you.

Successful completion of the program will signify that you have successfully completed a program of research training, that you satisfy examiners by demonstrating your ability to carry out a research project, as well as critically analyze the results of your investigation.

Your MPhil thesis (of no more than 35,000 words) is expected to make a contribution to an existing body of knowledge by applying, clarifying, critiquing or interpreting that knowledge.
