GCAS College is pleased to partner with GCAS Research Institute and The Economic Space Agency to offer a world-class Master’s Degree Programme. This is a one year guided research based programme providing the researcher “student” with the highest quality support through our renowned faculty members and global network. This programme also fulfills a need for addressing a wider range of research questions that may not be possible within in a more traditional setting.
The Global Center for Advanced Studies and GCAS College’s most basic commitment is to recruit and train the next generation researcher and thinker throughout the globe. To that end, we have implemented this programme.
There is a growing demand to research recent fields of study in a manner that the traditional university is unable grasp owing to its inherent operations and special interests that often favor corporations. Such fields of inquiry are important not only to understand independently but contribute to and to some degree help shape. This MA programme is designed to attract top researchers around the globe interested in exploring new fields and practices in an interdisciplinary manner.
The GCAS College Research Master’s Degree is one (1) year in length for full time students and two (2) to three (3) years in length for part time students. The student is required to complete 60 credit hours, which includes one seminar (Research and Methodology), peer-group work, supervised guided research, The Masters Comprehensive Examination (MCE), and the MA Thesis Defense.
The MA thesis length and structure may vary between 20,000 - 40,000 words (excluding bibliography and appendices) and not to exceed 50,000 words. Footnotes & citations normally should not exceed 20% of the thesis. For more details consult the GCAS Handbook.
