You want to conduct research that has real cultural impact. We can give you the academic guidance you need to do this. If you study a PhD or MPhil with us, you’ll work with two supervisors whose experience is most relevant to your field of study, with the option of additional staff members if you need. This way, you’ll benefit from a diverse network of support and expertise from day one.

Our courses

English Language and Linguistics MPhil, PhD
Connect with other research students through groups like the Anglia Ruskin-Cambridge University Romance Linguistics Seminar, which organises talks throughout the year that you can both attend and contribute to.

Film Studies and Media Studies MPhil, PhD
Our supervisors specialise in research areas like cinema and sexuality, violence and spectatorship, and music, sound and voice in media and culture.

Share your research

If you study your PhD or MPhil with us, you may have the chance to take on teaching responsibilities and organise research events, so you can develop your work through face-to-face debate and critical analysis. And we host regular faculty and departmental seminars, to give you the opportunity to share your ideas in our safe and supportive academic community. You’ll also be part of a department that’s world-leading for our research, according to the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
