Digital Culture and Creative Industries doctoral study programme
The mission of the four-year doctoral degree study programme Digital Culture and Creative Industries (hereafter DCCI) is to prepare researchers for educational and cultural institutions that are focused on research into the implications of the proliferation of digital and networking technologies and their potential for creative application, and also their application in the creative industries. The aim of the study programme is to train and educate top experts in the fields of new media arts, digital culture and culture management with a focus on the creative industries.
The concept of the study programme is based on the interconnection of theoretical research and creative practice (artistic, design, curatorial, production) conceived as a specific type of basic (primary) research, that is necessary for a deep understanding of the studied phenomena and their critical reflection in them. Emphasis is placed on cooperation with the sphere in which the practices are applied (topics of dissertations taking into account the current needs of subjects from the sphere of application) and on the international dimension of study (study visits and internships abroad, presentations of academic and research outputs at international forums, special lectures by foreign experts, etc.).
