MPhil and PhD research in Liberal Arts

We are always pleased to receive expressions of interest in studying for an MPhil or Ph.D. with us in Liberal Arts.

The areas of study that we can supervise are the same as those for the MA Liberal Arts. However, it may be that you are interested in researching the area of liberal arts education itself, and we are keen to hear from you if this is the case.

In addition, if your interests do not sit neatly within any particular subject discipline, then you might consider an MPhil or Ph.D. in Modern Liberal Arts.

The tutors profiles and interests can be found on the University of Winchester website.
