Top Doctorates in African Studies in Asia 2019/2020

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

African studies is an academic field that examines political, economic and cultural events and trends across Africa. Programs in this area may specialize on a country or region or focus on specific periods of time, such as colonization as well as its effects.

Research Degrees in African Studies

Mode of Attendance: Full Time or Part Time

Supervision is provided for research leading to MPhil and PhD degrees within the broad general area of African studies. Research topics such as the study of a language (from a descriptive, comparative, philological or textual point of view), or of literature (whether author-based, thematic or comparative), or of any of the performing arts, which falls within our own core expertise, are supervised entirely in the Department.

Structure
