Students who do not complete the dissertation in the prescribed time are automatically scheduled for a Doctoral Dissertation Advisement course. This continuation requires a Dissertation Advisement Fee per semester (fall, spring and summer), which is assessed each semester until the successful completion of program requirements or an approved leave of absence is granted.

Modern Culture and Media
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Brown University in Providence, RI
The Ph.D. program prepares students to engage in rigorous and innovative scholarship and teaching in the theory, history and critical analysis of one or more media in ways that encompass diverse cultural contexts and historical periods. The Department of Modern Culture and Media is committed to the study of media in the context of a broader examination of cultural, social, and political formations. Modernity is understood as intimately interwoven with technical modes of production and reproduction. Those in the department study: print, insofar as it is connected to mass dissemination; photography; sound recording; cinema; video; television; and digital media. We examine media not in the narrow sense, but as immanent to the phenomena they produce and record. Plans of study are individualized according to students' interests. Students may emphasize the scholarship of one medium or of several media and their interrelationships, but coursework and exams will also include a component in textual, cultural, and/or social theory. This combination enhances both disciplinary depth and interdisciplinary flexibility.
