Course Summary

This MPhil programme will give you the opportunity to develop new and highly sought after skills which can set you up for a range of careers. It’s a chance to make a novel contribution to knowledge, to become a world expert in a particular field, and it can open a range of doors with different employers. You'll also enhance your interpersonal skills, such as networking and relationship building, which will be invaluable in your future career. You will also benefit from a range of other opportunities to meet regularly with other students and academic staff by means of the weekly PGR seminar series, research forums, research seminars and involvement in the School’s Research Groups. We encourage students to present at conferences, publish, exhibit their work, and to contribute to our lively research community. Our research programme is versatile and can be purely theoretical or a practice-led interrogation of creative processes and their outcomes. Our research takes place both through individual scholarship and in collaboration with research partners across the UK and the world, and we investigate new directions in both the creation and the analysis of a wide range of cultural forms.

Our unique range of research opportunities encompass art, design, history, theory, theatre, performance, post-medieval literature, publishing, linguistics studies, and creative writing, including theatre, fiction and poetry. We are particularly interested in research that includes reflection within and across the boundaries of our disciplines, and encourage projects which have the potential to make a substantive contribution to the academic and social/economic impact of our research. Our research includes conceptual research leading to published outcomes and applied research leading to industrial and commercial applications and/or professional and public commissions. We are also committed to knowledge transfer and knowledge exchange projects. We use our research strengths to form links with the creative industries, developing the entrepreneurial side of our activities, and fostering a range of productive and effective knowledge transfer partnerships.
