Doctoral Study in Arts and Humanities at The Open University
The Faculty of Arts is internationally recognized for innovative research across the range of its subject areas, including the study of literary, philosophical and visual texts and their reception; the historical investigation of policing, science and religion; and the exploration of performance in music and drama. Much work is focused on the United Kingdom (with strong interests in the national histories and cultures of Ireland, Scotland and Wales) but there is also considerable expertise relating to mainland Europe, Africa and the Indian subcontinent.
Several major AHRC-funded projects are based in the Faculty. We have a strong vision for developing successful interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research and a commitment to ensuring that our research effectively informs not only our own teaching, but a wider process of knowledge exchange with cultural and heritage partners.
Equal Opportunity is University Policy.
