The University of California at Santa Cruz is pleased to announce the call for applications to the PhD program in Visual Studies. Applications are welcomed October 1 through December 15 for our class entering in September 2015.
This interdisciplinary program is designed for students with diverse academic backgrounds from across the arts and humanities who wish to pursue a graduate degree focused on the social and cultural production of human vision and on the distinctive roles played by art and artifacts in societies from around the globe. Faculty research areas include cultural production in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Mediterranean and the Pacific Islands.
The program employs a wide range of visual evidence for examination, without being constrained by traditional hierarchies of art and art history. Fine arts, architecture, photography, film, performances, utilitarian objects, and popular entertainments all are primary source material for scholars in the field.
The flexibility of the program allows students to work closely with their advisor and the Director of Graduate studies to craft a personalized course of study that advances their intellectual and professional goals.
For more information on the program, faculty and application requirements, please see our website.
