PhD Media and Cultural Studies

Lancaster University

Course Overview

The Media and Cultural Studies PhD programme at Lancaster offers a chance to develop your own knowledge and research in the ever changing world of media. Our staff have studied how things such as television, YouTube, gaming, journalism and fan communities intersect with key themes of power, class, skill, inequality, and visions of the future.

You will join an international and interdisciplinary community with students working on PhDs in Sociology, Gender and Women’s Studies, Science Studies, Media and Cultural Studies, and Applied Social Science. You will be assigned PhD supervisors (usually two), and consideration will be taken to match you with supervisor(s) whose current active research interests and expertise are relevant to your chosen topic. Close working relations are enjoyed with other departments at Lancaster, and in some cases there is cross-departmental supervision.

A programme of skills and dissertation workshops designed specifically for postgraduate students within the Sociology Department runs throughout the year.
