Postgraduate research

MA by Research (MRes) and PhD

Our postgraduate students are based in a dedicated study and resource centre. Our thriving research community hosts an annual post-graduate conference, CATHICon. Most PhDs are published and many have attained post-doctoral fellowships and lectureships. In partnership with #DMUGlobal, CATHI postgraduate students have visited the world-renowned Margaret Herrick library, the Warner Bros archive and the One Archive in Los Angeles.
