Course content

Our PhD research programmes will allow you to explore your own interests in dramatherapy, supported by the expertise of our staff.

Our staff’s expertise extends from dramatherapy and psychodrama to performance arts. We particularly welcome applications in the areas of intercultural dramatherapy practice, multidisciplinary collaborations and practice-based evidence or evidence-based practice.

The interdisciplinary nature of our research creates a rich and stimulating environment for staff and students. You’ll benefit from a variety of research-oriented events, including our Faculty and Departmental research seminar series, performance events and international conferences.
