Course content

We welcome proposals for research in any area connected with media, communications, digital media, cultural theory and practice. We give priority to those with proposals for research within the areas of interest of our staff.

Research degrees in this Department have two elements: the research work that you carry out individually under supervision; and a programme of taught courses which brings you into contact with other students within Goldsmiths.

Supervisors and their students form loose research teams, sometimes on a joint basis with another group. When you apply, please indicate your intended research area and any preference for a particular supervisor.

The Department also offers a PhD programme partially by audio-visual practice. We encourage applications from Doctoral candidates who wish to submit, as part of their thesis, a portfolio of practical work alongside a reduced textual component.

Fees and funding

ESRC, AHRC. The Department has a high success rate in obtaining studentships.
