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. 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). A PhD is awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic to a group of academics. You are also expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding. 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.
