The Ubiquity Degree
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.
The Creative Journey to Dissertation - Finding Your Voice, Making your Mark
The “Creative Journey to Dissertation” is a 1-week intensive during which you will work directly with our Dean of Graduate Studies Dr. Gyorgyi Sabo. The course is a critical part of the dissertation writing process and is a requirement for all MA candidates.
Faculty: Gyorgyi Szabo
Support during your Graduate Program
During your graduate dissertation writing you will be supported by a Major Advisor of your own choosing, as well as optional writing courses and writing mentorship.
