Course summary

On our Phd in Media and Communication you will examine real world problems in the media, cultural and creative industries. With a distinctive research approach, Warwick's Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies will allow you to excel.

Course Overview

Our Research degree routes encapsulate specialisms in the media and creative industries and cultural policy.

The Centre does not have a prescriptive approach to research methodology and advocates a subject-led approach with appropriate methods selected and adapted according to the objectives of the research. Research methods are likely to be diverse and individualised rather than following a collective 'best practice' model.

This is exemplified by our PhD route in Media and Communication, which includes the option of joint supervision with colleagues from the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM).

As a research student in CMPS you will be expected to make an original contribution to your field by critically reviewing existing knowledge and by challenging current assumptions and orthodoxies in cultural policy and the media and creative industries. Your research should be a personal journey which engages with issues and ideas you feel are significant and which are challenging and relevant to those working in and on the media and cultural sector.

Areas for PhD supervision

Management and Creativity; Intellectual Property and the Creative Economy; Digital Media and Digital Memory; Cultural and Media Organisations; Global Media Industries and Policies; Creative Enterprise; Arts, Media and Sustainable Development; Implicit cultural policy research; Cultural Policy; The Value of Culture; Cities, Spaces and National Identities; Structure and Agency in the Museums and Galleries Sector; Cultural Taste and the Sociology of Culture; Cultural Work; Transnational Screen Media; Media, Gender, Emotion and Ageing; Memory Studies, Archives and Popular Heritage; Media Policy and the Environment; Pedagogy, Creativity and Storytelling.

For students interested in the PhD by Media and Communication route, additional supervision areas can be found under the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies.

Teaching and Learning

Our PhD students are supervised by experienced researchers and specialists in the fields of cultural policy, media and creative industries.

You will join a vibrant and growing community of PhD researchers, supported by regular one-to-one supervision, work-in-progress and research seminars, as well as having the opportunity to organise and contribute to research events focussed on your interests. Centre students have full access to the PhD training provided by the Centre for Arts Doctoral Research Excellence and Warwick Careers & Skills to augment your research and enhance your professional development.
