The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Creative Arts and Media is a programme that provides students an opportunity to carry out research and contribute new understanding and insight to the discipline. By carrying out independent scholarly work within a specialist area of the creative arts and media, graduates will contribute to the advancement of their discipline.

Possible areas of investigation include a wide range of topics and approaches, from research about media, communication and the arts to interpretations of existing artworks, as well as creative arts practice itself. We welcome historical, theoretical or philosophical approaches as well as analytical interpretative enquiry into the work and practices of the creative arts and media. Candidates may also incorporate creative arts practice and the creation of artworks or other artefacts as part of their research. Research topics in media include journalism, public relations, corporate communications, advertising, broadcasting, film, digital heritage, the internet, or media policy and regulation. Creative arts research topics could be in areas related to the disciplines of film, music, theatre, and other art, design and media practices.

This list is not exhaustive, topics may combine, overlap, be interdisciplinary and combine theory with practice. Potential candidates should contact the Programme Leader to discuss prospective research topics of interest in the area of creative arts and media. Acceptance of the PhD proposal is subject to a panel review, interview session, and the supervisor’s approval.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

In addition to the thesis, the student is required to complete one taught module - Research Methods – before proceeding with the Proposal Defence. This core module introduces students to the fundamentals of academic research and methodologies at the postgraduate level in order to conduct an independent research project.

The student is also required to complete a thesis (which may include a research-creation component, if applicable) that demonstrates mastery of the advanced points, craft and discipline of the area of research. With the assistance of the supervisor, the student will independently design and carry out an extensive research project, develop significant research outcomes that are of national and international significance, and publicly disseminate these results to engage with the scholarly community.
