Independent researcher who wants to move on to a PhD? Just interested in what further study might look like?
Take a first step towards doctoral study: explore your area of interest in depth, test out a research topic, and learn the skills of longer scholarly writing and film production. You’ll be supervised one-to-one, and then assessed entirely on your research dissertation.
Along with your one-to-one supervisions, you’ll take part in an interdisciplinary course in critical theory and methodologies. There, you’ll learn about the key thinkers in the field, and the critical approaches you’ll need for your dissertation.
