The PhD in Cultural Mediations recognizes that recently graduated doctoral candidates seek positions within:
- academic interdisciplinary departments
- departments of
- art history
- cultural and governmental agencies outside the university.
These positions require a training of increasing the intellectual and cultural scope, one which moves beyond traditional disciplinary and cultural frameworks even while it includes them.
Increasingly, traditional, single-discipline departments are seeking appointees with:
- interdisciplinary (or multidisciplinary) abilities
- cross-cultural literacies.
This shift reflects a growing awareness that traditional ways of organizing knowledge are shifting.
The central objective of the program is thus to provide students with this combination of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural intellectual breadth along with disciplinary training and competence.
Notice for Applicants to the PhD in Cultural Mediations: All application documents are submitted online. You can refer to the FGPA Admissions page for the most up to date information. Please contact our Department Administrator Dawn.Schmidt@Carleton.ca with any additional questions.
