Course summary

Our PhD programme sits within the Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), which has a long-established reputation for producing world-leading research. We have 25 supervising staff and over 50 doctoral researchers, whose projects cover the full range of CAMRI interests, critically exploring the political, economic, social, and cultural significance of the media across the globe. The PhD programme and its doctoral researchers are a crucial part of the work both of CAMRI and of the School and we encourage all of our PhDs to participate fully in our many and varied activities and events. We welcome high quality applications to join our thriving community of researchers. We are a consortium member of the AHRC funded TECHNE Doctoral Training Partnership, offering (subject to residence qualifications) fully-funded 3 year studentships.
