Doctoral studies

The Doctoral School of Theater and Film, active since 2009 within the Faculty of Theater and Television of BBU, includes doctoral study programs in two professional-artistic and research fields, which are combined in an interdisciplinary dialogue: the field of Theater and Performing Arts, and the field of Film and Media.

The PhD program in Theater and Performing Arts aims to train specialists in the field of theater research and performance arts studies, combining theoretical research and discourse in theater criticism with research based on artistic creation, in the form of practice as research. The doctoral studies on theatricality and performativity, on dramatic theory and criticism and Romanian and universal performance art are associated with those dedicated to different methodologies of stage creation, creative strategies and theater pedagogy related to the art of the actor/performer and the director. At the same time, the doctoral program in Theater and Performing Arts encourages interdisciplinary interpretative perspectives, in which theater approaches enter into dialogue with those on visual culture, and aesthetics meets cultural anthropology.

The PhD programme in Cinema and Media aims to provide the opportunity to develop research projects that study a diverse range of types of audio-visual productions, including studies of cinema, television, video art, but also Internet-based new media. Participants in this research programme will have the opportunity to study elements of aesthetics, ideology, visual culture, as well as contemporary technologies used in the main forms of audio-visual production, the most important of which are cinema and television. Studies in this area will focus on a multidisciplinary approach, dealing with both national and international productions, and will not be limited to traditional academic contexts, but will encourage the discovery of new spheres of interaction between the arts of visual representation.
