Course summary

OVERVIEW

We offer research programmes in both critical and creative practice. These are designed for students who wish to conduct research into historical or broader theoretical issues in film and audiovisual cultures, or those who are interested in practice-led research. We encourage cross-disciplinary projects, especially those involving other areas within the School of Creative Arts. There are three programme routes:

PhD in Film and Visual Studies (Creative Practice)

Students opting for the PhD (Creative Practice) route will produce a body of supervised creative work, accompanied by a written critical treatment contextualising this work with the broader field of film and audiovisual cultures. We are particularly interested in applications in the following areas: Documentary Film, Conflict Transformation, New Media and Experimental Aesthetic Practices.

PhD in Film and Visual Studies (Critical Practice)

The PhD in Film and Visual Studies (Critical Practice) route offers students the opportunity to undertake advanced, original research in one of our current areas of specialisation: cinema history and historiography; sound and film; world and comparative film studies; documentary film; and Irish film and audiovisual culture.

INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS: There is significant flexibility regarding start dates for postgraduate research programmes, subject to prior agreement with primary supervisor. Candidates should contact Admissions should they wish to revise their PhD programme start date.
