Journalism

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 provide a substantial body of work accumulated over their career, and then 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 and successful research environment, with ongoing grant-funded projects for UK research councils. 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.
