Overview

Key Features

The dissertation at the Theatre (by research) programme from University of York must include a critical reflection on the relationship between the dissertation and the piece of creative work.

The 12000 word dissertation is a critical piece of writing, demonstrating an advanced ability to research, investigate and discuss relevant ideas, debates, contexts, creative processes and products/texts. The dissertation should provide a contextual framework for the piece of creative work and demonstrate advanced levels of appropriate subject knowledge, insight and understanding. It should also use appropriate academic referencing and bibliographic conventions.  

The piece of creative work can comprise different types of material depending on the research topic and subject matter. Examples could include:

  • A performance of between 60 and 120 minutes, with the candidate taking the part of lead actor or director/facilitator (other roles for the candidate to be negotiated with the candidate’s supervisor). This might be a performance in a theatre, an installation, or a site-specific performance (other possibilities to be negotiated with the candidate’s supervisor).
  • A stage play of between 60 and 120 minutes which has been written by the candidate.

Programme Structure

  • Postgraduate students in the Department of Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media are also part of the wider York community. 
  • The Humanities Research Centre (HRC) is a beautifully designed space for academics and postgraduates from across York's eight arts and humanities departments, that provides a highly stimulating and supportive base for postgraduate study. 
  • The HRC also offers strong professionalising training, a beautiful working environment and plenty of opportunities both to socialise and to collaborate on shared projects.
