A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) represents advanced learning and research accomplishments. A foundational degree in the field of interest is a prerequisite of any program.

What is a PhD in Digital Media? Foundational coursework in media research and theory are taken by most PhD students. Scholars work with various aspects of design, technology and culture. Some programs also require history of media or technology as part of their course load. With supervisor discussion, students tailor their electives to suit their interests and dissertation or thesis. Additionally, some students will be required to have a minor and/or portfolio in addition to their dissertation or thesis. Typically, programs complete in three to four years, whether at home or abroad, with most requiring some on-campus time.

With the current dependency on technology, digital media skills reach across many industries and avenues of life from social media to website design. Thinking critically and creatively are skills that transition outside of work, research and education and into the personal lives and communities of graduates.

Due to the varying costs associated with earning a PhD and the different programs, research needs to be conducted prior to making a final decision. It’s also good to ask admissions offices about financial aid.  

Post-doctorate career opportunities are often found in postsecondary education. However, many students also find employment outside academia in media divisions. Job titles include media content creator, digital specialist, new media storyteller, mobile journalists, social media manager and transmedia specialist. Employment can be found in a variety of industries, including telecommunications, radio and television services, advertising, public relations, graphic design, desktop publishing, local government, photography, higher learning, and more.

PhD programs are offered internationally as well as locally, online an on-campus. To continue, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
