Theatre Studies

Applications are accepted for any area of study in the contemporary arts including fine art, design, film, music, theatre and dance. Lancaster Institute of Contemporary Arts (LICA) has a community of over 60 doctoral students and you will be supervised by staff who are leaders in their respective fields. Much of the research in LICA is outward looking, involving the wider public, professionals, and policy makers in the development and benefits of research. LICA offers the opportunity to undertake research that integrates creative practice with theoretical or historical study, as well as offering more traditional research programmes assessed by thesis only.
