Taught postgraduate courses

‌We offer a wide range of MA courses, enabling you to focus on your areas of interest or follow a balanced education across the three disciplines.  All are one year, full-time courses of study.

Students with an interest in finance and who intend to pursue a career in finance usually apply for either the Economics and Politics or the general MA in PPE pathway.  Specific guidance on finance modules will be made available on arrival in York.

For each of our MA courses, a Diploma is available for students who complete the taught elements of the course but do not go on to write a dissertation.

We are delighted to be able to offer one AHRC fee-waiver bursary to a candidate seeking to begin an MA with us in 2017, with a view to continuing to a PhD. This would cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate, but is also open to applicants from overseas.
