About Culture, Media & Creative Industries PhD

Most recent REF rankings: 1st in the UK for power. 80% of our research was deemed to be world-leading (4*) and internationally excellent (3*) standard. We received an outstanding score for the impact of our research and were ranked third of the Russell Group universities.

Description
The department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries (CMCI) carries out world-leading research across the field of culture, media and the analysis of particular creative industries. Specialisms include cultural work, creative cities, visual cultures, popular culture, cultural and creative industries policy, cultural management, entrepreneurship and cultural production, cultural regeneration, cultural history, culture and identity, and inter-sectionally and culture. Our approach is international in perspective and is characterised by a productive engagement of the theoretical and empirical.
CMCI is also developing, in concert with Digital Humanities, research into digital cultures, particularly into social networks, digital identities and digital activism.
We work in an inter-disciplinary mode: although we are based in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, much of our research has roots in the social sciences.

Joint PhDs - Benefits of collaboration
Our joint PhD programme with the Humboldt University Berlin offers students the opportunity to enjoy full supervision at both institutions. The Joint-PhD also organises international colloquia and workshops at which students can present and discuss their work with peers and academic staff across the institutions involved. The programme builds on an extensive network of existing institutional links, joint teaching experience and collaborative graduate programmes between King's and the partners universities.
Applications are welcome from across a whole range of areas in culture, media and creative industries with a substantial German element.

Free language tuition at King's
All research students in any discipline at King's can take a module from a choice of over 25 languages with the Modern Language Centre without any additional cost.
