# Submodule of a finitely generated module over an artinian ring

I have a left artinian ring $R$ and a finitely generated left $R$-module $M$, and a submodule $A$ of $M$. My question is : is $A$ necesseraly finitely generated ? (and is there a direct proof of this from the "artinianity" of $R$ ?)

Thanks. My original (homework) problem asked for a projective resolution of $M$ in finitely generated projectives (and the previous exercise was the existence of a composition series for $R$ ...). –  user52599 Dec 11 '12 at 11:46
