The MA and PhD in Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies are unique because of their linkage of adjacent disciplines: film and media studies and, more generally, the study of screen cultures, film and media production, and curatorial studies and practice. We encourage applicants whose proposed work has connections across multiple areas of the program. It is not required that applicants’ work spans both screen cultures and curatorial studies. SCCS’s multidisciplinary programs provide students with a wide range of course options and professional opportunities in academia, arts management, programming, media production (from mainstream media, to artistic and activist production), and curating. Our program is based in Humanities and Arts methods including theory, criticism and practice.
