The one-year MA programme consists of four full course equivalents.

Students who have already taken any of these courses at the undergraduate level must select other graduate courses to bring the total to four full course equivalents.

Each MA student will be assigned an advisor by the Graduate Coordinator, based on the student's interests and the available faculty advisors. The advisor will supervise the writing of the Forum paper.
