Summary

Our PhD Drama programme enables you to carry out an in-depth piece of research before either writing a full 80,000-word thesis or completing a practice-based dissertation.

Drama at Manchester offers three main strands of research: Theatre Studies, Applied Theatre and Screen Studies.

The staff/student seminar series, Cultivating Research, provides a regular forum of debate and the presentation of short papers on a wide range of topics, and acts as a focal point in the postgraduate research culture.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, Drama at Manchester retained our ranking as second nationally among UK Drama departments.

All staff are research active within our three main research strands. These areas interlink, and both staff and students are keen to cross the boundaries from one area of research to another.

The notion of 'dialogue' - with ideas, practices, communities - is at the heart of all our practical and intellectual explorations.

We regularly initiate research-council-funded projects, present seminar series and host conferences.
