Course summary

Study Interdisciplinary Studies PhD at Warwick's innovative and diverse Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies. With tailored guidance, and through an interdisciplinary approach, you will develop research expertise and an accompanying skillset.

Course Overview

An interdisciplinary PhD at CIM allows you to conduct research in more than one area of inquiry and/or methodology, across innovative fields such as complexity science, digital media research, data visualization, cultural economy, science and technology studies, digital sociology, and environmental humanities. It will allow you to do research that might not fit easily in a traditional PhD programme.

An interdisciplinary study does not mean that you are ‘free floating’ or that you will not have identifiable expertise at the end of your study. It means that you will develop and acquire research expertise and an accompanying skillset that crosses more than one discipline, and the ability to engage with and contribute to broader interdisciplinary discussions within and beyond the university.

While CIM is not the only place where interdisciplinary study is possible, there are very few places where the development of interdisciplinary methodology is the focus. In CIM, you will benefit from tailored guidance from academics and professional staff with experience and expertise in the challenges of interdisciplinary research.

Research Themes

CIM is a well-established research centre, and the PhD programmes are at the core of its culture.

Areas for PhD supervision

Research is focused on the following main research areas: Interdisciplinary Methodologies; Digital Sociology; Computational Cultures; Data Visualisation, Science and Technology Studies and Environmental Humanities.

Teaching and Learning

Supervision will be provided by top academic researchers with significant experience in undertaking research and contributing to methodology development across a range of disciplines, topics, methods.

Most doctoral students at CIM are supervised by two academics, with co-supervisors based in CIM or in relevant other departments at Warwick, such as Sociology, Computer Science, History, the Institute for Sustainable Development and the Centre for Media and Cultural Policy Studies.

As CIM is a research centre, PhD students are exposed and contribute to a vibrant research environment, which includes PhD seminars, workshops, lectures, work-in-progress forums and study visits. Students may also participate in research projects based in CIM, and gain teaching experience.
