The Master of Arts is 180 credits. This means you can complete an MA in three semesters of full-time study. If you study part-time, an MA will normally take three years to complete. (In some disciplines - geography, social anthropology, sociology and politics - you can complete in 12 months of full-time study.) Studying arts is transformative. Employers, industries and the labour market of the future need humans who can thrive in an ever-changing world marketplace, and be able to correctly task and critique new ideas.
