Summary

The programme is intended to produce scholars who have the analytical and methodological skills to design independent research projects, generate publications that advance substantive and theoretical knowledge and understanding and who are able to teach at university level. The substantive and methodological nature of the PhD programme, the diverse research interests of staff members and our London location have resulted in the completion of a range of innovative disciplinary and inter-disciplinary doctoral dissertations.

We are particularly interested in applications from students who wish to carry out research in the areas of: new media and the digital society; trends and developments in global news-media; media, campaigning and social change; crime and criminality; crime and popular culture; policing, criminal justice and crime prevention; victimology; contemporary social theory; gender, sexualities and social change; work, employment and socio-economic change; youth studies and cultural studies.
