Is an MA required for a PhD?Watch
- Study Helper
I'd like to do an English and History degree then a PhD in an area of English Literature then go on to lecture, but that in itself would take at least 7 years, 8 if I do a year abroad. With a masters degree, that would take it up to 9-10 years in education. Is it necessary?
Also, do people work while doing a masters/PhD? I can't imagine having a menial job during this time as well as during my BA degree as it wouldn't be enough money to support myself properly, would it be like that? Can you lecture for a uni whilst studying your PhD?
