Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Emerging Media Studies Boston University



Course info


The PhD in Emerging Media Studies (EMS) is designed to create academic and industry leaders who, by virtue of having completed their doctoral thesis, have already made a scholarly contribution to the field of emerging media studies. The program’s objectives are to give students a comprehensive understanding of the role of emerging media in society and organizations, and hone their research skills so that they can undertake independent and innovative research on emerging media. Students will gain an understanding of the philosophical and intellectual underpinnings of emerging media as well as their practical role in society and organizations. Graduates will be able to critically evaluate issues related to the social role of emerging media.

Candidates for the PhD degree in emerging media studies must complete a minimum of 68 credits of graduate-level coursework beyond the Master’s degree with a grade of B– or higher in each course. Credits are distributed among fundamental courses, required content area courses, courses on pedagogy and instruction, directed readings, and participation in an extended research project. In addition, doctoral students must pass a qualifying examination and complete a doctoral thesis which constitutes an original scholarly contribution to the field.
