Summary

While the PhD through Education is normally by written thesis, the School considers applications which employ alternative media. Contacting the College in advance of submitting a proposal allows discussion of research themes with staff. Current Education PhD research interests include:

- Visual Art Education in the Primary School Curriculum

- Assessment in Art at Leaving Certificate level

- Art and Design in National Curriculum Policy

- Evental education and art practice

- Culture, Collectivity and Globalisation: performing community in the arts.

PhD study normally requires a minimum of three years full-time study (but may require longer, given the high level of achievement required). The PhD thesis is typically 80,000 to 100,000 words in length.
The PhD programme at NCAD is a structured programme involving significant interdisciplinary and discipline specific input in the early stages of the research project, and active engagement with a community of researchers within and beyond NCAD.
