University of Gothenburg Doctoral Programme
The Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts of the University of Gothenburg announces eight vacant places on its doctoral (third cycle) programme to start on 1 September 2010. Subjects cover Digital Representation; Research on Arts Education with a specialisation in Dance; Independent Filmmaking; Fine Arts; Literary Composition, Poetry and Prose; Musical Performance and Interpretation; Performance in Theatre and Music Drama; and Crafts.
The doctoral programme is partly organised as an interdisciplinary faculty research school, where theoretical and methodological issues with a particular focus on artistic research are treated. The education comprises of 240 higher education credits, which is equivalent to four years of full-time studies. The programme consists of a course section, aims at providing the student with deep theoretical knowledge, a diversification of approaches and schooling in methodology, and a part dedicated to the student's dissertation, including the student's own research and artistic work and also the completion of a doctoral dissertation.
The doctoral programme leads to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or, if certain conditions are met, a Doctor of the Arts (A.D.); the latter, however, does not apply to the subject Research on Arts Education.
