The departments of Dance, Theatre and Fine Art are known nationally and internationally for excellence in both practice-based and theoretical research. Research students can be supervised either within or between our constituent departments, and can take practice-based or theoretical routes as appropriate to their research.
The Dance Department is a leading provider of excellence in dance education. Research supervision is offered by a strong, research-active team with a wide range of expertise, and includes academics and practitionerscholars with international reputations. We lead a vibrant research culture across the arts departments based on interdisciplinary dialogue and performative exploration.
According to the REF2014 the Theatre Department is increasingly defined by the international repute enjoyed by the world-leading research and practices of our team. The range of contemporary professional practices within the staff profiles evidences a wealth of recognition that the department has received for award-winning performance work matched by generative critical paradigms. Our culture of creative exchange celebrates diversity in the processes of research inquiry. The vitality of challenging practices in theatre, drama and live arts is driven by individual accomplishments contributing to collective successes in a warmly close-knit, arts-active research community.
Aims of the Programme
The main aims of the programme are: a) the creation and interpretation of new knowledge through original research or other advanced scholarship, or of a quality to satisfy peer review, extend the forefront of the discipline and merit publication; b) a systematic acquisition and understanding of a substantial body of knowledge which is at the forefront of the academic discipline; c) the general ability to conceptualise, design and implement a project for the generation of new knowledge, applications or understanding at the forefront of the discipline, and to adjust the project design in the light of unforeseen problems; d) a detailed understanding of applicable techniques for research and advanced academic enquiry appropriate to the discipline.
The award of MPhil or PhD is assessed through submission of a written thesis or equivalent for practice-based disciplines and an oral examination with a panel of examiners (viva voce). The viva is compulsory for PhD and for MPhil.
The standard requirement for an MPhil/PhD is a first or upper-second honours degree and/or usually a relevant Master's degree. Candidates with other qualifications are considered individually on their merits. All students are interviewed by their potential supervisor(s) and a Research Degree Coordinator or nominated other.
The University of Chichester has two campuses: one in the centre of Chichester, a charming and historic town, and the other close to the sea in Bognor Regis.
The university offers both taught and research degrees at postgraduate level, with many of the courses offering work placements during the year. There is a vast range of academic departments to choose from, including business, dance, humanities, music, sport and theatre.
Both sites are easily connected by a regular inter-campus bus service. Across the two sites, students have access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities including a sports centre, Engineering and Digital Technology Park, students’ union, a restaurant, a theatre and a Learning Resource Centre.
