M.Phil and Ph.D in Theatre & Performance Studies

M.Phil and Ph.D in Cinema Studies

The School of Arts and Aesthetics is one of the few places in India that offers post-graduate degree courses in the theoretical and critical study of the cinematic, visual and performing arts. Moreover, it is the only place in India where these disciplines are offered in one integrated programme that allows students to understand the individual arts in relation to each other and to place them in the broader context of history, sociology, politics and cultural studies. The teaching
here adopts a multidisciplinary approach drawing on insights from the fields of anthropology, history, media and cultural studies. Students are introduced to a range of research methods that combine archival, ethnographic, theoretical and
cultural approaches.

The School focuses on taught degree programmes. Currently, the School runs MA, MPhil and PhD programmes. While the PhD programme is entirely research-based, the M Phil degree offers specialized instruction in one of three streams, ie, Visual Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies and Cinema Studies. The M.A programme allows for an integrated study of all the three streams.

The School benefits from being part of the larger academic community of Jawaharlal Nehru University, as well as the cultural riches of the city of Delhi with its active circuit of exhibitions, theatre and musical performances and film clubs and
festivals.

Through its programmes, the School hopes to produce a range of cultural critics, theorists and workers in the cultural field who will help to widen and enrich the cultural discourses on both the practice of art and its academic engagement.
