Program Description

PhD in Communication Studies

University of Johannesburg

The purpose of this programme is to explore a wide range of forms of human communication from a variety of perspectives that connect the local and the global and are rooted in African contexts and experiences. As an inherently interdisciplinary and flexible programme, the MA in Communication Studies intersects a multiplicity of fields and areas in the humanities and social sciences and offers an opportunity to explore their complementarity and interconnectedness.

This qualification provides students the opportunity to master the art of independent studies by writing a research thesis under the supervision of a senior researcher. The focus of the dissertation is based on the proposal submitted by the student and decided upon jointly with the supervisor(s).

Admission requirements

The admission requirements are specified by the general university entrance requirements, not excluding the discretion of the Postgraduate Admission Committee or the Head of the Department. The closing date for applications for this degree is 31 October of the preceding year for the first semester and 30 April of the same year for the second semester.
