Course Summary

The School of English and Journalism offers research opportunities at the highest level of academic qualification: a PhD or a PhD by Practice.

We have a well-established research environment and students can benefit from the School's research expertise in areas including diaspora media, peace and conflict reporting, media history, literary journalism, class, and gender.

Students are provided with academic guidance and support by experienced supervisory teams. There is also a doctoral training programme to help students develop the research skills necessary for their study.

The School has strong links with professional industry bodies and benefits from regular guest speakers.

How You Study

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, a significant amount of time will be spent in independent study and research. Students will meet with their academic supervisor, however the regularity of this will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, and the stage of their programme.

Career and Personal Development

A doctoral qualification may be regarded as the capstone of academic achievement and may be the starting point for a career in academia or research.
