3 List of PhD Programs Around the World

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 [Note to WordPress readers: this site doesn’t preserve footnotes, and I have not added the images that will appear in the book.]

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 This is the first listing of PhD programs around the world. No list can be completely accurate, for at least seven reasons: there is no international listing body; the listings for some regions, including the EU, include programs that aren’t up and running; some programs are on “soft start” or accept less than one student per year on average; some are being reorganized so that studio art practices aren’t required; some programs are on hiatus, or are suspended; some are in the last stages before implementation; and, most important, there are endemic problems in communication on this subject. Even within a given country, such as Canada, it can be rare to find someone who knows with certainty how many programs there are.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 I am trying to keep this list up to date, so please email me (via the website, www.jameselkins.com, or at jelkins@saic.edu) with additions. Please don’t send rumors; only let me know if you’ve actually visited an institution.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 If you disseminate this list, please keep these opening paragraphs with the file, so that I can get corrections and additions.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 Even though they can be read in a matter of minutes, lists like this take a long time to create. I owe thanks to many people, and especially everyone on Facebook who made corrections and additions in spring and summer 2012, and to many colleagues and staff in ELIA, the CAA, AICAD, and other organizations for their help.

10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 The main source for the PhD degrees in Europe is ELIA, the European League of Institutes of the Arts (elia-artschools.org).

11 Leave a comment on paragraph 11 0 ELIA has worldwide membership, but most is concentrated in Europe. (This screenshot is as of March 2013. The Art Academy in Tromsø is the one in the far north, and the European University of Cyprus is the one I have arbitrarily cut off at the bottom.) Within this larger listing, the SHARE network (Step-Change for Higher Arts Research and Education) offers a listing of third-level (graduate, or in UK usage “postgraduate”) institutions involved in studio art. As of March 2013, thirty-three institutions were listed; unfortunately a number of those had not yet implemented the degree. (For example the Academy of Fine Arts and Design Bratislava did not have visual art students in 2012, and the University of Malta, Department of Arts and Languages in Education was only contemplating the PhD, even though it was listed, and in talks with SHARE members.) To assemble the list in the next chapter, I had to contact most institutions individually. There is still no reliable online listing of currently active PhD-granting institutions in the EU.

12 Leave a comment on paragraph 12 0 A third organization in the EU is EARN (European Art Research Network, artresearch.eu). This is a  group of ten institutions. Their website cleverly turns Europe on its side, as in a medieval map:

13 Leave a comment on paragraph 13 0 These institutions vary widely in size and structure. GradCAM in Dublin, founded by Mick Wilson (who is a contributor to this book, and is currently based in Gothenburg) takes 10-15 students per year. Leeds may be the oldest of the group; they awarded their first PhD in 1998. The degree was introduced there by Adrian Rifkin, and Griselda Pollock wrote the original specifications; they are both art historians, not practitioners. As of autumn 2012, there were approximately 12 students in the program. Another contributor to this book, Henk Slager, is central to the maKHU in Utrecht; he also publishes the MaKHUzine (2006–present), one of the most visible publications in thew field (www.mahku.com). The IUAV in Venice is a fairly large program; it accepts about 20-25 visual art students per year; in 2012 it had 80 students on campus. The Malmö Art Academy in Lund, Sweden, is a smaller program; in 2011 it had five artists and one curator as students.

14 Leave a comment on paragraph 14 0 Outside the EARN network the picture in Continental Europe is even more diverse. The Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture in Finland is one of the largest. First DA (Doctor of Arts) with was granted in 1998, on photography. As of spring 2012, there were about 250 students aiming at the DA degree. By December 2011, 96 DA’s had been awarded.

15 Leave a comment on paragraph 15 0 There are large lacunae in PhD offerings in Continental Europe. As of fall 2012, French art academies (écoles) had not yet implemented any PhDs. This is sometimes contested, but it is technically true; PhDs in studio art have been available, and arguably Roland Barthes was the first to approve one in 1979, but they are provided through the Facultés d’arts plastiques et d’esthétique (for example at Université Paris 1). Institutionally, the consortium that would award the PhDs to studio artists in academies had not yet been formed as this book went to press.

16 Leave a comment on paragraph 16 0 Other gaps have to do with how academic conferences are organized. Given the current activity in Scandinavia and northwestern Europe, other regions may sometimes be ignored. Among the larger European programs, one that is often bypassed in conversations is the National University of the Arts Bucharest (Universitatea Nationala de Arte Bucuresti), which had 45 students as of fall 2011. Likewise, conferences that aim to be international are not always so. There was a large conference in Lisbon in 2009, organized by three Portuguese institutions. However there were only two non-Portuguese guests: Kathleene Rogers (Media Art and Science, University for the Creative Arts, Farnham Campus, UK) and Luís Badosa (Universitat del País Vasco, Facultat de Belles Arts, Spain)—and no art historians were invited.

17 Leave a comment on paragraph 17 0 With the growing number of institutions that grant the PhD, there will doubtless be more communication between countries and institutions; but it is symptomatic that even within Continental Europe institutions frequently develop their own concepts, curricula, and requirements without broad comparisons. Despite the Bologna Accords and the Tuning Documents (administrative initiatives in the EU aimed at standardizing education in different countries), PhD programs differ widely across the EU.

18 Leave a comment on paragraph 18 0 The PhD course in the Faculty of Fine Art of Universidade de Lisboa, for example, is a large program: it accepted 67 applicants in its 1st year (2009), 26 in 2010, and 36 in 2011.  (Thanks to Joana Cunha Leal for this information.) Students attend a 2 year course and have a final year to complete their dissertation. The Faculty of Fine art offers an unusually wide range of specializations: Audiovisuals, Multimedia, Image Theory, Photography, Painting, Sculpture, Public Art, Installation, Artistic Anatomy, Geometry, Drawing, Equipment Design, Communication Design, Science of Art, and Art Education. It would be interesting to compare this organization with other comparably-sized institutions.

19 Leave a comment on paragraph 19 1 Institutions in the EU also vary widely in size and scope. Smaller countries necessarily have smaller programs; some countries, and some programs, specialize, offering particular kinds of education, but others do not. In Ireland, for example, five institutions offer the PhD: GradCAM, NUI Galway, the Crawford School of Art in Cork, the little-known Warnborough University in Dublin (a low-residency initiative), the Waterford Institute of Technology, and the Burren College of Art. Each program is small: NUI Galway and the Crawford School of Art each accept 1-5 students per year; the Waterford Institute of Technology takes a student per year; and the Burren College of art awarded its first PhD in 2012. Of these, only GradCAM and the Burren College of Art have established their visible emphases and profiles. In other countries, such as the Netherlands, there are more institutions with particular “flavors” and specializations. It is not yet clear whether the trend is toward individuation or multiplication. (Personally, I think all programs should try to stand out, and play to their potential strengths; I’ll have more to say about this in chapter [   ].)

23 Leave a comment on paragraph 23 0 The United Kingdom

24 Leave a comment on paragraph 24 0 The UK requires a separate treatment from the rest of the EU, because it developed the PhD earlier than the Continent, and under different conditions. There are 157  “recognized bodies” with full title and degree-granting capacities, that could in theory award the studio-art PhD; as of this writing, there are over [   ] programs. (The list is in the next chapter.) Again there is no official, up-to-date source; a good option is to search on prospects.ac.uk, using limiting search terms such as “full-time” and “practice.” The UK produces large numbers of PhDs; here is data from 2010-11, taken from hesa.ac.uk:

25 Leave a comment on paragraph 25 0 I will not describe these programs in detail, because much of this information is covered in Chapter 1.

26 Leave a comment on paragraph 26 0 It bears noting, in the context of an international survey, that the official literature of UK programs (on their websites, and in their promotional material) frequently refers to “research” and “knowledge” as defining points. This happens, I think, more consistently and frequently in UK programs than elsewhere in the world. The University of Reading, for example, offers a “Research Platform” in association with the Zürich University for the Arts; Reading’s program stresses rigor and learning outcomes. In 2013 Newcastle University’s website noted that “in the recent national UK ‘Research Assessment Exercise’ 85% of our research was rated ‘internationally excellent’ or better.” The University of Arts, London (a consortium including Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges) advertises “rigorous… critical examination,” resulting in “learning outcomes” including the communication of “new knowledge.” Like several other institutions, the Royal College of Art offers a specialized Research Methods Course “to prepare MPhil and PhD students for research at a higher level.” At the Glasgow School of Art, “Research Degree Students attend a one-year training program… aimed at equipping them with high level research skills.” There are some exceptions; Goldsmiths literature for example does not stress research. But in general the UK advertises for students by emphasizing rigorous, high-level research. More on this in Chapter 12.

30 Leave a comment on paragraph 30 0 6. Australia and New Zealand

31 Leave a comment on paragraph 31 0 There are 26 degree-granting institutions in Australia and New Zealand. A good source is the 2009 project report “CreativeArtsPhD: Future-Proofing the Creative Arts in Higher Education” (creativeartsphd.com). They report that the earliest program was the University of Wollongong, which offered the doctorate in 1984, followed in 1989 by La Trobe University and the University of Western Australia. The dates there indicate a gap of about a decade from the programs’ inception in the UK to their adoption in Australia. (There is no evidence that there was awareness of the programs in Japan.)

32 Leave a comment on paragraph 32 0 Judged on a worldwide scale, the numbers of graduates at Australian universities is very high. In 2007, the most recent year recorded in the “CreativeArtsPhD” report, over 200 fine arts students enrolled in Australian PhD programs. Almost 50 had graduated the year before. In the period 2005–7, that number was almost constant, so extrapolating forward, and without assuming any growth, the number of PhDs in visual art and design awarded in Australia in the decade 2003-2013 would be at least 500. That number is probably larger than the graduates from EU universities and academies outside the UK, and it is an order of magnitude greater than the number of graduates from the Americas or Japan. Even without refining these numbers, it is clear the international job market is more or less balanced between Europe (including the UK) and Australia and New Zealand: a fact that has consequences for future conversations about the administrative, conceptual, and economic features of the PhD.

36 Leave a comment on paragraph 36 0 Canada

37 Leave a comment on paragraph 37 0 Canada has five studio-art PhD programs, with the same caveats about programs that currently aren’t accepting students, have been suspended, or are being contemplated. One of the three is Concordia in Montréal. They have three “Research-Creation PhDs”; one is Communications; the Humanities PhD takes approximately 1 or 2 students per year.  The Art Department at Concordia doesn’t have a PhD; artists have enrolled instead in the Communications PhD. (Thanks to Natalie Loveless and Haidee Wasson, September 2012.) The University of Calgary’s program started in 2009; as of fall 2012 one student had completed and three more were enrolled. The program is mainly theory-based. (Thanks to Paul Woodrow, May 16, 2012.) The others are the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) Doctorat en Études et Pratiques des Arts; York University, outside Toronto; The University of Western Ontario Department of Visual Arts, which accepted its first students in 2007 and had its first graduates in 2011; and Ryerson University in Toronto, which began developing its program in 2006. Most of the Canadian institutions known for their MFA programs, such as the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia (NASCAD), do not yet offer PhDs, but several are contemplating the degree.

41 Leave a comment on paragraph 41 0 The United States

42 Leave a comment on paragraph 42 1 The United States has seven studio-art PhD programs. Rensselaer Polytechnic (founded 2006) in Troy, New York, across from the State Capitol, is an interesting program; it combines of high technology with politically engaged practices. The University of California at San Diego, founded 2008, admits 2 students per year from a pool of about 50 applicants. As of spring 2012, there were two students scheduled to take their qualifying exams, but no thesis proposals. Six students were enrolled in the practice-based portion of the program. (Thanks to Jack Greenstein, May 10, 2012.) The low-residency Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts (IDSVA) is the only program in the world in which students do not show work or receive studio critiques: it is theory only. (See Chapter 9.) The University of California at Santa Cruz has a program that began in 2010; as of spring 2012 they had 7 students, and were aiming for a total of 30. The PhD program at the Santa Cruz  Center for Visual and Performance Studies is currently discontinued. (Thanks to Irene Gustafson and Jenna Purcell, May 2012.) The University of California Davis has a four-year Performance Studies PhD; its designated emphases include Critical Theory, and Feminist Theory and Research. Texas Tech in Lubbock began in 1974, more than thirty years before the other five programs; it has an “artistic practice” track, but is mainly research. It aims to admit 2 to 4 students per year. (Thanks to Connie Cortez, May 8, 2012)

43 Leave a comment on paragraph 43 1 Of the seven, several have distinct flavors. IDSVA has no rivals for what it does; it has a fixed curriculum of theoretical and philosophic texts that are intended to inform any artist’s practice. Because the Director, George Smith, has a background in literary criticism, the IDSVA has had a roster of prominent guest lecturers outside of the visual art world. Santa Cruz has a strong program in North American-style visual studies, which also involves gender theory, postcolonial studies, and anthropology. Rensselaer Polytechnic is one of the United States’s leading technical universities (alongside Georgia Tech), and the nearby State University of New York at Albany houses one of the world’s largest nanotechnology laboratories; so students at Rensselaer have a unique combination of political theory, activism, and science. The University of California San Diego is the home of Helen Mayer and Newton Harrison, who have been actively engaged in developing a new, environmentally focused PhD. (As of this writing, the program hasn’t been implemented.)

44 Leave a comment on paragraph 44 0 Those seven programs are the ones currently accepting studio-art PhD students as of winter 2013. A number of others are either about to begin, are on hiatus, or have been terminated. The early date of Texas Tech’s program shows it is one of at least four programs that began in the 1970s, apparently—although this hasn’t been verified—independently of the doctoral programs that were starting in the UK and Japan at the same time. At one point NYU had such a program, and so did Virginia Commonwealth. Currently VCU is not running a studio-art PhD. “The program attracts students who come from a studio background,” according to Jack Risley, “and some have made work that straddles the line between art, and text, but in the end it is not a studio based degree.” (Letter, May 10, 2012.) The history of these and other early programs in the US has yet to be written.

45 Leave a comment on paragraph 45 0 Among the institutions currently contemplating the PhD are my own, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC); the School of the Visual Arts in New York City (SVA); the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD); Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore (MICA); and Parsons The New School for Design. Most of these are rumors. My own institution has two completed proposals waiting for administrative action. Joel Towers, Executive Dean at Parsons, tells me that in spring 2012 they had a committee considering the PhD. SVA does not have their own program, but they advertise a collaboration with Leiden and The Hague. Jeffrey Nesin, the Provost, has been considering the degree. (I thank  Bill Barrett for passing on some of these rumors; I have heard even fainter rumors about a half-doze more institutions.)

55 Leave a comment on paragraph 55 0 China

56 Leave a comment on paragraph 56 0 There are only three PhD-granting programs in China, although at least five institutions are contemplating the degree. So far there is nothing comparable to the drive, in China, for expanded curatorial programs and positions (fifty new provincial museums are planned for the next decade) or for international exchanges in history of art, theory, and criticism (which have generated at least one conference every year for the past five years). Part of the reason that the PhD is not expanding in China is administrative: the degree is given under an administrative research heading, which does not exist in other academies such as Chongqing and Nanjing. It will require a change at the level of the Department of Education to make it possible for other a academies to offer the degree.

57 Leave a comment on paragraph 57 0 The question at the moment is where China will get the models for its studio-art PhD offerings. In the last few years I have been working on a complete list of art history, theory, and criticism books translated into Chinese; the overwhelming majority of titles translated since the 1990s are from North America; the majority translated before the 1990s are UK titles. As of this writing, none of the books or principal essays on the PhD have been translated into Chinese, and as far as I know there have been very few exchanges with institutions in other countries that offer the PhD. China’s PhD programs have largely been developed without exchange with other countries.

62 Leave a comment on paragraph 62 0 One of the main surprises of this research, for me, was “discovering,” in 2010, that Japan has twenty-six universities that grant the PhD. Most take their cues from Tokyo Geidai, the principal institution; but there is so far no history of the Japanese institutions.  In this book, Geidai dissertations are represented by two abstracts (Chapter [   ]). In 2012, Geidai formulated an extensive position paper in English and Japanese, which is evoked in the summary that was written for this book, to introduce the two excerpts.
