About Doctor of Philosophy (Faculty of Media and Communication) at Bournemouth University

From law, computer animation and media production to advertising and journalism, our Faculty of Media & Communication offers many opportunities for doctoral of philosophy research across a wide range of specialisms. We performed particularly well in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) results, with our research into communication, cultural and media studies rated as first in the south-west based on impact.

Within the field of computer animation, research carried out at BU into improving motion blur in filming has had a significant impact in the world of feature films, with Pixar among the organisations to adopt the new method put forward by our researchers.

As well as conducting research within the faculty, we also work closely with colleagues from other specialisms through our research institutes and centres, helping to deliver impactful and relevant research projects.
