Apply for our PhD Program — including Game Studies (within Communication Studies)

SOC-square-logo-colorKnow an aspiring scholar with an interest in games and communication theory?  Here at the AU School of Communication we are looking for people with an interest in persuasive play, games that help journalists to communicate about complex policy issues, and much more.  Send them our way.

au-game-lab-logo1The deadline to submit applications is December 15th, 2015!

Key benefits:

  • Location in DC is ideal for games (and game studies) tied to policy issues, global NGOs, national funders, politics, think tanks, (etc.!)
  • Games is a strategic growth area at AU, with several tenure line faculty hires in the past two years, and a new degree in Game Design (MA) that launched just last year
  • Accelerated program – finish your PhD in as little as three years

Check out:

  1. Our game research areas — still emerging!
  2. The PhD program in Communication Studies — which is where the PhD is officially housed
