The School of Arts and Creative industries is an ideal place to undertake PhD research. You will join a small, vibrant and diverse group of PhD students and will be supervised by academics of international standing. Our doctoral students often work together organising conferences, assisting academics in editing academic journals and publications and leading research-related events and symposia.
There are two Research Centres in the department reflecting distinct areas of specialism – Centre for the Study of Networked Image and Creative Technologies Research Centre. Our academic members of staff are active researchers, working at the cutting edge of research in many different aspects of performance and theatre, curation, museum studies, cultural policy, networked cultures, photography, film and journalism.
We offer PhD supervision in a range of subject areas, methodological approaches and theoretical approaches, including practice-based research.
