Course content

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

The PhD by Practice programme offers experienced journalists the opportunity to reflect on and critique their professional work in an academic setting. Students are expected to provide a substantial body of work accumulated over their career, and then have the opportunity to produce an associated commentary to form the main body of a portfolio, which is submitted in place of a thesis.

The School has a well-established research environment. PhD students can gain teaching experience and subject specialities include international (French, American, British and Commonwealth and Swedish) comparative, historical and literary perspectives, class and gender, media of diaspora documentary studies and freedom of expression.
