In the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Dublin, Bachelors of Arts of these universities are promoted to the degree of Master of Arts or Master in Arts (MA) on application after six or seven years' seniority as members of the university (including years as an undergraduate). As such, it is an academic rank, and not a postgraduate qualification. No further examination or study is required for this promotion. In the ancient universities of Scotland, a degree with the same name is awarded as a first degree to graduates in certain subjects (see Master of Arts (Scotland)).

  • Il Master of Arts (M.A., MA, A.M., o AM), dal latino Magister Artium, è un titolo di studio universitario corrispondente alla laurea magistrale rilasciata dalle università italiane. Al fine del suo ottenimento, il corso usualmente comprende inglese, storia, geografia e altre discipline umanistiche, filosofiche, sociali, belle arti o (in alcune università) assistenza infermieristica o teologia. Il diploma può essere conferito dopo aver passato un esame, aver effettuato una ricerca o con una combinazione dei due. Al Master of Arts, fa da contraltare il Master of Science (M.S. o M.Sc.).

  • In the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Dublin, Bachelors of Arts of these universities are promoted to the degree of Master of Arts or Master in Arts (MA) on application after six or seven years' seniority as members of the university (including years as an undergraduate). As such, it is an academic rank, and not a postgraduate qualification. No further examination or study is required for this promotion. This practice differs from most other universities worldwide, at which the degree reflects further postgraduate study or achievement. These degrees are therefore sometimes referred to as the Oxford and Cambridge MA and the Dublin or Trinity MA, to draw attention to the difference. However, as with gaining a postgraduate degree from another university, once incepted and promoted to a Master, the graduate no longer wears the academic dress or uses the post-nominal letters pertaining to a Bachelor of Arts, being no longer of that rank: i.e. the Master of Arts degree is not awarded separately (for instance, in addition to that of Bachelor of Arts), but rather the new rank is treated as a conversion of one degree to another. All three universities have other masters' (i.e. postgraduate) degrees which do require further study and examination, but these have other titles, such as Master of Letters (M.Litt.), Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.), Master of Studies (M.St.), Master of Engineering (M.A.I., or MEng), and Master of Science (M.Sc.). In the ancient universities of Scotland, a degree with the same name is awarded as a first degree to graduates in certain subjects (see Master of Arts (Scotland)).
  • Dans les universités de Cambridge et Oxford en Angleterre, et l'université de Dublin en Irlande, le terme de Master of Arts désigne un diplôme universitaire de premier cycle (undergraduate). On précise souvent Master of Arts obtenu à Oxbridge, Oxbridge étant un terme familier pour désigner les universités d'Oxford et de Cambridge. Il n'a pas le même statut que le Master of Arts "classique" popularisé par les universités britanniques et les universités américaines et qui lui correspond à un diplôme de deuxième cycle (postgraduate). Ce diplôme de premier cycle est également délivré dans les Ancient university d'Écosse mais sous une forme légèrement différente (voir : ). Cette pratique est l'héritage d'une longue histoire et n'est pas toujours très bien vue par les universités plus récentes. À Oxford, Cambridge et Dublin, le diplôme de Bachelor of Arts est d'abord délivré et peut être transformé en Master of Arts trois ans plus tard. Le principal reproche fait à cette pratique est que les étudiants reçoivent ce titre sans avoir étudié plus alors que partout ailleurs, le niveau Master requiert une, voire deux, années d'approfondissement après un Bachelor ainsi que la rédaction d'un mémoire. Ce Master de premier cycle est souvent considéré comme ayant une valeur légèrement supérieure au Bachelor et cette pratique risque de durer depuis la création de nouveau Master de premier cycle (undergraduate master) tels que les MSci, MEng ou encore MMath, qui sont des diplômes supérieurs au Bachelor mais qui ont un statut inférieur au Master classique. Historiquement, le premier à l'obtenir fut Edmond Rich d'Abingdon, futur Saint Edmond de Cantorbéry (1170-1242), dit saint Edme.
