Part-time MA Degree Programme (daytime)


The University of Dundee offers a flexible part-time daytime degree programme within the College of Arts and Social Sciences. The College has a long and successful history of providing a more flexible approach to study. This has attracted large numbers of mature students and students who wish to study on a part-time basis. Students who enrol on the part-time MA Daytime Degree programme will be fully matriculated students within the College of Arts and Social Sciences.

The part-time MA Daytime Degree programme is taught on a modular basis within a two-semester academic year.
