The School of Art, Media and American Studies (AMA) at the University of East Anglia is inviting applications to our PhD programme. The School holds a wealth of expertise in Art History and World Art Studies; Film, Television, and Media; and American Studies. You may wish to consult their list of staff and their research interests for guidance on possible supervisory expertise: https://www.uea.ac.uk/ama

There are a large number of funding opportunities available for AMA PhD applicants.

The University of East Anglia is part of the AHRC consortium CHASE (Consortium for the Arts and Humanities in South East England) which offers around 75 fully funded (tuition and maintenance grant) studentships per year to PhD students across the consortium.

Additionally, there are fully funded Scholarships (equivalent to AHRC rates for both tuition and maintenance) offered by the University, the Faculty and the School (for the school studentships, see below).

With the exception of the School studentships funding is open to any area of research, although their particular strengths are in the following areas:

Art History American Studies Film, Television and Media
Art History Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Civil Liberties Feminist Media Studies
World Art Environment, Space, and Place Media Consumption
