PhD in Semiotics and Philosophy of Communication Faculty of Humanities, Charles University
The Doctoral program Semiotics and Communications Philosophy provides the demanding training necessary for qualified philosophical and semiotic research into communication, its evolution, changes and relationships with other social spheres. The field of study is interdisciplinary. The intent is to study communication strategies, their social assumptions, and their effects. The field is conceived theoretically but the graduate may also have access to practical processes because it helps to better understand the role of semiosis in the process of mass media communication. Students are encouraged to build on the traditional lines of exploration of both world and Czech semiotics and communication philosophy to acquire the latest theoretical knowledge and to develop them creatively.
The graduate of the doctoral study program Semiotics and Philosophy of Communication is a qualified specialist endowed with a deep understanding of theoretical approaches in communicational strategies, relevant analytical skills, and solid knowledge of actual philosophic and semiotic research of the process of communication.
The study program provides necessary qualifications to those willing to work in basic and applied research in institutes and universities of the given thematic orientation. The graduates are also well prepared to occupy critical, conceptional, and creative positions and are qualified to work at such positions in the academic or mass media sphere where familiarity with semiotics and theory of communication is an indispensable asset.
