The Department of Communication and Arts
DCA covers RUC’s Communication programs (Communication, Journalism, and Performance Design) and Art programs (Danish, Philosophy, History, and Cultural Encounters). It is DCA´s ambition to be leading within the department’s research areas, nationally as well as internationally. It is also an ambition to have and to develop local, regional, national, and international research networks with the goal of ensuring the highest quality in all our research-based activities.
DCA aspires to develop an interdisciplinary research profile in the intersection between Communication, Cultural Studies, Social Science, and Humanities. The Department of Communication and Arts is an innovative and interdisciplinary university environment, characterized by diversity with respect to theory, method, and area of study in research and education. Accordingly, our research is characterized by double impact, i.e. by the highest academic quality, and by a direct interaction with public, private and civil actors in the society.
The Doctoral School
The PhD program in Communication and Arts offers a number of activities from international PhD courses and master classes with researchers from around the world to writing retreats, frequent work-in-progress seminars as well as informal activities. We expect you to be actively involved in all PhD activities and that you will contribute to a dynamic and inspiring PhD environment.
In order to support and strengthen the interdisciplinary research profile, enrolled PhD candidates will be allocated two supervisors (a main supervisor and a co-supervisor) from two different research groups in the department.
PhD candidates enrolled in DCA’s doctoral school will be affiliated to the same research group as the main supervisor and are also encouraged to engage with other research groups and research activities at the Department and elsewhere. All PhD candidates are encouraged to collaborate with other research environments and networks both nationally and internationally. In our recruitment process we emphasize the ability to take an active part in collective research processes.
