The Ubiquity MA/PhD combines the US and European designs of Master’s programs with a blend of taught learning with research and writing. The Master’s thesis or PhD dissertation must demonstrate excellence at every level. It must show awareness of the history of the literature in your particular area; demonstrate careful analysis and understanding of the field in question; and, most importantly, show how your insight can be applied to the real world. The thesis/dissertation must be scholarly and utilize extensive bibliographical data and footnotes. It should, in other words, be an impeccable work of research.
