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 and subject specialities include ethics, peace and conflict journalism. PhD students may be able to gain teaching experience (following further training).
