The Department of Philosophy at Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, Ireland has just announced an exciting new Structured PhD programme in Philosophy of Art and Culture, which will run as part of the University of Limerick-NUI Galway strategic alliance.

 

This exciting new inter-institutional PhD programme has been developed collaboratively by the Philosophy departments at NUI Galway and Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, with the Department of History at the University of Limerick. By blending expertise from the three partner institutions, this programme seeks to explore the philosophy of art and culture in an intellectually enriched setting, combining Analytic and Continental Philosophy.

 

The Objectives of the Programme are:

 

  • To develop the student’s capacity to pursue research independently and in collaboration with others and in broader networks of international  research contacts;
  • To initiate students into, and consolidate their knowledge of, theories and methodologies that are basic to research in all aspects of philosophy of art and culture;
  • To encourage students to formulate their work in such a way as to be presentable at conferences and colloquia at both the national and international level;
  • To enable students to teach and develop their research to international standards through specialist disciplinary education;
  • To provide students with a strong foundation in theoretical and methodological principles;
  • To develop students’ skills as active researchers, as well as enable them to engage with their peers through research networks and collaborative research.

 

The programme will be offered on an inter-institutional basis across the three partner Institutions.

 

Students will therefore register at either Mary Immaculate College/University of Limerick or NUI Galway, but will, under the guidance of their supervisors, take a number of core modules in each of the participating institutions, and will choose from a number of other modules on offer.

 

There may also be an element of Distance Education, depending on which modules individual students select for their own needs.
