This part-time course takes a practical approach, linking work-based problems to personal and professional development. It is research-based and equal to a PhD, but has been designed to meet the needs of those working in the creative professions.
The Professional Doctorate Programme (PDP) offers three degrees in the School of Art & Design. They are:
- Doctor of Digital Media
- Doctor of Fashion Industry
- Doctor of Fine Art.
How you're taught
This course is delivered through a series of key workshops associated with each module.
You will be assigned two supervisors to support your research, and benefit from a specific number of hours of supervisory meetings. Study circles, formed at the start of the course, will also provide a mechanism for mutual support.
You will benefit from stimulating teaching and tailored support based on your personal, pastoral and academic needs.
You'll be assessed on the completion of six pieces of work.
Where appropriate, some of these pieces may be submitted as a combination of writing and creative practice.
