Kent's Centre for Journalism offers an MA by Research and a PhD in Journalism. These provide rigorous training for careers in academic journalism and communications roles.
We welcome applications from students who wish to undertake research in most major areas of the discipline, and offer particular strengths in political journalism, journalism history, conflict reporting, travel journalism and journalism ethics.
We provide a supportive environment in which our research students can develop and complete a high-quality thesis. Students receive dedicated supervision, including regular guidance and feedback from two supervisors, both of whom are experts in the chosen field of study.
Some or all of the PhD opportunities in this programme have funding attached. Applications for this programme are welcome from suitably qualified candidates worldwide. Funding may only be available to a limited set of nationalities and you should read the full programme details for further information.
