Scholarship, Professional Practice, or Both


The practice-based PhD in Media & Design Innovation is an innovative, doctoral program that builds on The Creative School's history of applied education and addresses the need for scholar-practitioners in the communications, creative industries and academic fields. 

The practice focus of the program may be particularly well-suited to those interested in entering the academic field as professors within applied university and college settings. Among other possibilities are researcher-practitioners in digital media industries, artist-curators, senior research scientists, developers within industry-based research centres, as well as government and policy-related careers.
