M.Litt and PhD Research Degrees

Students engaged in doctoral research spend their time preparing for and writing a thesis, which is then examined and upon which the degree may be awarded. They work closely with a supervisor from the School who guides their research and monitors their progress. They meet regularly in a postgraduate seminar to discuss common theoretical and methodological concerns, and where they read and critique others' work under the guidance of senior academics. In the first year they also attend courses in critical and cultural theory and in methodology for theatre and performance studies.
