DescriptionIntroduced in 2008, the Ph.D. in Film and Moving Image Studies is a dynamic program that emphasizes multidisciplinary approaches to critical studies of cinema and audiovisual media. While grounded firmly in film and critical theory, research is open to new directions in global cinematic cultures and evolving media. The program embraces a broad range of scholarly interests, which are reflected in the selection of the Ph.D. seminars offered each year.

Ph.D. students are integrated into wider international scholarly networks through regularly held international Film Studies conferences, seminars and workshops, research teams, and working groups housed at Concordia. Students’ professional development is furthered through collaborative research with faculty members, innovative pedagogical training opportunities, and teaching experience. The Doctor of Philosophy in Film and Moving Image Studies is an academic degree with no studio component. It includes one year of coursework, comprehensive exams in the chosen area of specialization, thesis proposal, and dissertation, both of which are accompanied by oral defense.
