Research Degrees

In achieving both artistic ambition and academic astuteness, prospective postgraduate research students will join a thriving research environment.

Postgraduate Arts Researchers at the University Of Chichester enjoy creative encouragement and the critical support of supervision within an inspiring community.

As a department committed to innovative new performance within contemporary contexts, current theoretic frameworks and practice-based knowledge inform the excellence of teaching led by our research expertise.

Areas of specialist supervision that may be of particular appeal to prospective postgraduate researchers in Theatre include:

  • Theatre, health and wellbeing
  • Trauma and transformation
  • Performance intimacies and performative efficacies
  • Arts and intervention within public place/space and site
  • Post-colonialism(s) and dramaturgy
  • Autobiological Performance
  • Biopolitical performance in terrorism and tourism

Through a programme of partnered research training, development events, exhibitions and performance, Postgraduate Researchers in Theatre further benefit from the opportunities for sharing and exchange of practices with research from Visual/Fine Art and Dance.
