The School of English and Journalism offers research opportunities at the highest level of academic qualification: a PhD or a PhD by Practice. The PhD by Practice programme offers experienced journalists the opportunity to reflect on and critique their professional work in an academic setting. Students provide a substantial body of work accumulated over their career, and then produce an associated commentary to form the main body of a portfolio, which is submitted in place of a thesis. The School has a well-established and successful research environment, with ongoing grant-funded projects for UK research councils. PhD students can gain teaching experience and subject specialities include international (French, American, British and Commonwealth and Swedish) comparative, historical and literary perspectives, class and gender, media of diaspora documentary studies and freedom of expression. Lincoln’s MA by Research Journalism enables students to learn how to manage a complex research project of their choice, while demonstrating initiative and self-reliance in pursuing research goals.
For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.
