In this doctoral study programme, through interactive lectures and discussions, as well as independent research, students learn about theories of modern, avant-garde, experimental, neo-avant-garde, postmodern, and contemporary art, with special focus on contemporary phenomenalities of media, such as new media, inter-media, post-media, and trans-media. They finalise their own original and innovative contribution to their chosen object of study and research by writing their doctoral dissertation. Upon graduating, students receive a Ph.D. degree in Art and Media.
