New Ph.D. Concentration in Art Practice

The Visual Arts Department
University of California, San Diego

9500 Gilman Dr.
La Jolla, CA 92093-0327


The Department of Visual Arts at the University of California, San Diego is pleased to invite applications to the Art Practice concentration in the Ph.D. program in Art and Media History, Theory, and Criticism. The concentration is designed for artists whose practice employs, critiques or otherwise engages research methodologies and disciplinary protocols from the humanities, social sciences and sciences. This is a concentration within an existing art and media history Ph.D. program rather than an independent art practice doctorate. As a result, art practice candidates are required to fulfill the same academic requirements as other Ph.D. students, including two to three years of graduate level course work in art and media history, theory and criticism, language exams, passage of a formal qualifying exam, and submission of a dissertation prospectus. Their dissertations, however, combine a shorter written component with a completed art project (film, video, exhibition, inst allation, public project, etc.). Applicants should have some academic or professional background in art and media history, theory and criticism as well as an established, research-based art practice.

The UCSD Visual Arts department is recognized as one of the preeminent centers for contemporary art and media practice in the country, combining a vibrant MFA program with a Ph.D. program that has become a magnet for ambitious scholars committed to historical and theoretical research into contemporary art and media. Students entering the Art Practice concentration need either a master’s degree (M.F.A., M.A.) or a bachelor’s degree (B.A, B.F.A., B.S.). Applicants must submit academic transcripts, GRE scores, three letters of recommendation, a statement of purpose, a CV, a sample of scholarly writing in art or media history and theory (20 pages minimum), and a portfolio or other representation of their art practice by January 2, 2009 for admission during the Fall of 2009. The statement of purpose should describe the applicant’s past work and it’s relationship to art and media history and theory, their goals in the Ph.D. program, and how they plan to make use of the resources of fered by the Visual Arts department and the university as a whole.
