Research programmes at the Centre for Journalism
We welcome research applications across the range of expertise in the Centre and from all over the world.
Research programmes are best suited to students who have a clear and original idea of a topic that they would like to investigate in detail. There are two types of programme: the MA by Research entails producing a 40,000 word thesis; the PhD programmes demand a high level of research and analysis resulting in dissertations of 80,000 words (PhD). All first-year research students attend a Methodologies and Research Skills seminar. Through the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Centre provides training in methods of using sources and can assist in funding applications. Find out more.
