finalcountdown Posted July 10, 2010 Share Posted July 10, 2010 (edited) Hi there, I am a journalist in India with 4 years' experience. Completed my masters in development communication in India and have a bachelors degree in commerce (accounting). I have an inclination towards film history, criticism and research, with Bollywood (Indian film industry) as a primary focus. Finally zeroed in on the subject for my PhD research which is film censorship. Was thinking of applying to cinema studies departments earlier. But considering my background (with no MFA degree) it seems I should aim for critical studies or rhetoric. Also, I've seen developmental studies departments in some schools like Wisconsin-Madison. Is it a reputed school? what are the career prospects of passing out from it? That college has some Indian profs doing similar research, which may improve my chances of getting in. What other schools/departments can I apply to? Does anyone know profs working on similar studies.. I'll be giving my GRE next month. Lotsa work to do Anyone else aiming for PhD in films in 2011? Hows the prep coming along. Edited July 10, 2010 by phdfromabad Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
