Course content

Explore your research interests in art and design - from computer games art, to illustration and photography - supported by the expertise of our staff, on our PhD programme in Cambridge.

Informed by your particular discipline, you’ll critically contextualise your work, clarifying both theoretical and practical research-based enquiries, and producing distinctive contributions to the research field.

You’ll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. Our supervisors are experienced in most areas of art and design, including: creative practices that crossover between art and design, graphic design and typography; interior design (with a special interest in the role of light); design and identity; and fashion and psychology.

At Cambridge School of Art, you’ll be part of a vibrant and growing community of researchers at PhD level. We have various research forums that accentuate the discursive and interdisciplinary nature of research, such as our close links with our University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering, and local and national arts institutions and practitioners.

All your subject-specific studies will be enhanced and supported by our University-wide training sessions, where you’ll gain important research expertise in areas like ethics, presentations, intellectual property and digital scholarship.
