The doctoral programme in media and broadcast offers opportunities for both critical and creative practice. Doctoral candidates can focus on 'traditional' historical, critical and theoretical studies resulting in an extensive written thesis, or concentrate on practice-led research. The media and broadcast programme presents an ideal opportunity for interdisciplinary research, connecting with areas both within and beyond the School of Arts, English and Languages. There are three programme routes: PhD in Media and Broadcast (Creative Practice) The PhD (Creative Practice) results in a body of supervised creative work supported by a written critical component that places the creative output within the broader field of media and broadcast cultures and engages with appropriate critical approaches to this material. Particular areas of supervision expertise include documentary production and digital media. PhD in Media and Broadcast (Critical Practice) Doctoral candidates undertaking the PhD (Critical Practice) will develop advanced, original research relating to their chosen subject. Particular areas of supervision include the history of broadcast media and fantastic genres. Each of the PhD routes can also be studied as an Integrated PhD. This has an additional first year involving a mix of taught modules and independent work intended to develop skills and knowledge to enhance and develop the doctoral project. It is particularly beneficial to candidates whose project involves a shift in discipline or interdisciplinary work. The Integrated PhD option must be selected during the application process. MPhil The MPhil offers candidates the opportunity to undertake either critical or creative practice at an advanced level in one of our areas of specialisation. Research students are encouraged to play a full and active role in relation to the wide range of research activities undertaken within the School and the wider University.]
