List of Doctoral Programs for Art and Media

Komatsuzaki

I keep encountering more people who are looking for a list of places where they can do doctoral study that also involves the making of art.

This list:

  • comes with no endorsements
  • neglects PhD in Design programs (for now)
  • sometimes includes theory/history programs where practice-based work is tolerated
  • does not reflect any burning desire on my own part to pursue such a degree
  • is not ordered in any meaningful way
  • focusses for now on the U.S. and UK
  • will definitely expand, and welcomes comments/additions!


For now, here’s my list gathered from various notes and searches:
