PhD in Museum Gallery and Heritage Practice
The PhD in Museum, Gallery and Heritage Practice addresses a desire for a professional doctorate in museum studies that achieves a synergy between research and practice.
It has been designed to aid those who wish to develop a research project that is of direct relevance to their professional work and which can be undertaken incrementally while working. It meets the needs of professionals studying at a distance but can also be undertaken by students studying full time.
- A structured research journey which builds incrementally towards completion and better meets the needs of the working professional.
- A strong relationship between research and practice: research that deepens practice; practice that makes research impactful.
- An attachment to the values of the the PhD, by maintaining an emphasis on research quality and individual creativity as assessed by the thesis and viva voce examination.
- The development of advanced research and practice-based skills directly relevant to the student’s professional context and which build upon professionally-recognised skillsets developed at Masters level.
- A PhD centred on individual research and practice rather than on taught components.
- The flexibility to weight and position the practice and research elements according to the needs and ambitions of the project.
