Complete a second masters degree in an Arts subject.
The MLitt is an alternative to the PhD if you already have a masters degree and want to complete a substantial research project. You can complete an MLitt in most subjects offered by the Faculty of Arts, subject to approval and availability of supervision. You may be able to further your research interests in the same subject as your first masters degree, or undertake research in a new area.
One year of full-time study or up to two years of consecutive part-time study
