PhD Museology / Programme details
Year of entry: 2019
All Museology staff supervise research students and welcome enquiries from prospective students in their respective research areas. Please visit The Centre for Museology to find out more about our interests and expertise, and to find out what our current PhD students are working on.
If you are thinking of applying to do a research degree in the Centre for Museology, you should look at the individual web profiles of our members of staff and get in touch with us if you would like to discuss your ideas. It is in the nature of research that it is exploratory and breaks new ground, and we can help you judge what areas you might most profitably explore.
Students on this programme will be part of the Graduate School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. For more information on the facilities available within the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, please visit www.alc.manchester.ac.uk/study/graduate-school/
Unfortunately, we are not in a position to offer PhD students a dedicated desk/office, however there are a number of dedicated PhD computer clusters for your use in the Graduate School. Please note that all clusters operate on a hot-desking principle.
Research and teaching in the Centre for Museology are supported by rich resources within the University, in the collections of the University of Manchester Library with its unique Special Collections housed in the refurbished Deansgate building, the Manchester Museum and the Whitworth Art Gallery , as well as in other distinguished Manchester archives and collections. Our research students also work on collections and institutions, past and present, beyond Manchester - in the UK and overseas.
