The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) at AUT South Campus in Manukau is a research-only degree, which culminates in a thesis and provides a pathway to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.

The research for the Master of Philosophy culminates in a 120-point thesis. The thesis demonstrates your ability to carry out supervised research in a sustained investigation, which contributes to the knowledge in your area of specialisation.

It is conducted with a high level of skill in analysis and critical evaluation, and should provide evidence that the candidate is familiar with and has employed the most suitable research methods, and that the procedures are clearly of a master's degree level.
