Doctorate in Research in Art and Design

EINA Doctorate

Since 2017, EINA has promoted the Doctorate in Research in Art and Design as an itinerary on the UAB Doctoral Programme in Philosophy and Theory of Arts. Through the Official Master's Degree in Research in Art and Design (MURAD), EINA offers the possibility of continuing with studies by taking part in this doctoral programme, which gives access to the title of Doctor from the UAB.

Doctoral students can count on the joint supervision of an EINA teacher and a lecturer from various degree courses at the UAB, and they can take part in various seminars on subjects in design, philosophy, aesthetics and theory of art promoted by EINA or the Department of Philosophy and Theory of Arts at the UAB.

Especially designed to provide support to monitoring doctoral theses under way, the seminar GEARAD - Aesthetics Applied to Art and Design Research Group acts as a methodological, procedural and contents-based reading and discussion group. Besides the monthly work sessions, members are encouraged to take part in research activities such as publications, conferences, seminars, etc. to train themselves in developing the usual academic formats.

With the Doctorate in Research in Art and Design, which gives access to the title of Doctor from the UAB, EINA has become the first university school of Design and Art in Spain to offer the entire continuity of education from a bachelor’s degree through to a doctorate, making it a pioneer in the country with an academic pedigree in line with global European educational centres devoted to research in art and design.

Aims

The doctoral programme boosts research in art and design with the aim of multiplying research that takes these disciplines as process generators and as tools for exploration that intersect with other areas of knowledge. This perspective contributes to providing continuity to art and design studies through the third cycle, while also creating a community of doctoral students and doctors that enriches the future perspectives of these areas of knowledge.

Research groups

The EINA Doctorate in Research in Art and Design is linked to the SGR GRETA – Aesthetics and Theory of Art Research Group, and its doctoral students take part in academic activities organised by the Research Projects that are part of it.

Thesis supervisors

Doctoral research and teaching staff from EINA and from the Department of Philosophy and Theory of Arts at the UAB.
