A DPhil is the Oxford equivalent of a PhD.
Both ‘PhD’ and ‘DPhil’ are abbreviations for ‘Doctor of Philosophy’, which is an advanced research qualification usually involving independent research to write an original thesis. It usually takes three to four years of full-time study or six to eight years of part-time study to complete.
Students are able to gain necessary research skills through a range of courses and are invited to attend and offer papers to the Centre For Life History & Life Writing Research seminar series. We also have a close working relationship with the Mass-Observation Archive and Special Collections at the University of Sussex. Current students are working on, for example, the history of community publishing, gender in a peace activist movement of the 1960s, a fictional biography of a Victorian forbear and auto biographical motivations in contemporary culture. Recently completed theses include attitudes towards abortion before the 1967 abortion reform legislation, popular memory and World War II in Japan and life histories of heroin users.
The Centre for Life History and Life Writing Research is the leading centre of its kind in this country. It offers you the opportunity to research a range of subjects using life history methodologies.
