New Media and Film (Structured PhD [Inter-Institutional])
College of Arts, Social Sciences, & Celtic Studies,
Huston School of Film & Digital Media | School of Humanities
This new research initiative promises to address areas of great significance for new digital media, the art of cinema and for culture. The impact of digital technologies on the way audio visual works are produced and, importantly, how they are received and understood by audiences, will be at the centre of media research for some time. Contemporary work in this area is at the leading edge of study linking digital media to the traditions of narrative and image making. It aims to integrate theoretical concerns with the impact of digital media on cultural and social expression with practical concerns and the media industries. Whilst academically strong, the research should lead to new concepts that are applicable to practice.
Structured PhD (New Media and Film (Inter-institutional)) - full-time
The minimum qualification necessary to be considered for admission to the PhD programme is a high honours, primary degree (or equivalent international qualification), or ’other such evidence as will satisfy the Head of Discipline and the College of his/her fitness’ (NUI Galway Calendar). It is more usual, however, for successful applicants to have already gained a Master's degree.
