Course summary

The Doctor of Philosophy degree is an internationally-recognised qualification which affords students the opportunity to investigate a topic relevant to the Faculty’s areas of expertise under the supervision of a team of qualified academic staff.

The criterion which distinguishes the doctorate from other research degrees such as the MPhil is that the doctorate must produce an original contribution to knowledge in the field whereas an MPhil may consider and comment on existing knowledge.

We have an extensive list of academics holding doctorates and associated expertise that are able to supervise students engaged in research degree level work across all the major disciplines associated with a first class art school.

We are engaged in innovative pedagogy and research projects at the leading edge of knowledge across the arts and in design across the four schools that comprise Swansea College of Art:

  • Design & Applied Arts
  • Film & Digital Media
  • Fine Art & Photography
  • Visual Communication

We offer opportunity for would be researchers to join our teams in professional surroundings and develop exciting new fields of exploration across cultural disciplines.

We offer research degrees in both part-time and full-time mode and aim to attract a range of people from early career researchers across art and design to mid career teachers in need of inspiration and the chance to renew perspectives.

We also welcome late career researchers who finally have the time to pursue that great idea they had. If you would like to hear more about the exciting opportunities available through our research degrees programme please contact us to book an appointment.
