The following pages contain information about studying for a PhD degree in CMCI, including questions to consider before applying, and how to make an application.
CMCI carries out world-leading research across the field of culture, media, history and the analysis of particular creative industries. Specialties include cultural work, creative cities, visual cultures, popular culture, cultural and creative industries policy, cultural management, entrepreneurship and cultural production, cultural regeneration, cultural history, culture and identity, and inter-sectionally and culture. Our approach is international in perspective and is characterised by a productive engagement of the theoretical, empirical and archival. We work in an inter-disciplinary mode: although we are based in the School of Arts & Humanities, much of our research has roots in the social sciences. CMCI offers experienced supervisors with a wealth of PhD examination experience.
CMCI's PhD training programmes are geared to the best possible provision for full-time students; for this reason we do not encourage part-time applicants. We have found, from experience, that it is unfair to students and supervisory staff if we cannot deliver supervision and training of the highest standards. Accordingly, we will only consider such applications if based upon a long term plan and underpinned by evidence of continued funding and/or support of an employer for the whole registration period.
