The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study.
Arts studies incorporate the history, culture, and practice of a variety of different art forms. Examples of topic areas include sculpture, film, painting, musical instruments, theater, and photography. Programs often combine classroom learning with hands-on work.

The Doctorate Program in Arts and Humanities of the ULL is a graduate post-graduate program aimed at training researchers in linguistic and cultural studies. It involves the departments of Fine Arts, Classical, French, Arabic and Romance Philology, Spanish Philology, English and German Philology and History of Art and Philosophy; and it covers the areas of knowledge related to linguistics and the Arabic, Spanish, French, Greek, English, Latin and Romance philologies, their cultures and literatures, and music, art and design, their production, theory and history.

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) may be undertaken in any discipline within the Arts or Sciences. The degree offers ABDs or those who have earned sixty-six graduate credits from an accredited institution the opportunity to complete their doctoral studies.
Sixty-six graduate credits are needed for transfer. These credits may be taken prior to or after admission. An additional twenty-seven credits are to be earned at International University for Graduate Studies. Candidates are required to undertake six credits of non-classroom research and design, which is the foundation for the eighteen credit doctoral dissertation and oral defense. In addition, a three-credit eight-day doctoral seminar is required. The sixty-six transferred credits and the additional twenty-seven credits which are earned at IUGS will total ninety-three credits and will meet the requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy....

Why embark on a Research Degree?
While a research degree should be very rewarding personally, it is also a serious and sometimes intense undertaking. Under the current system, a full-time doctoral student has three years to complete a full draft of her or his thesis and then a further one year for writing up (known as a 3+1 degree). There are always solitary moments when carrying out individual research, even if a department has a strong collegiate atmosphere, as ours does. Research degrees are generally undertaken by individuals who aim to become professionals in the field of art history and/or archaeology, whether as academics who carry out research and teach in universities or as curators or educators in museums, libraries or archives, or in any number of other related areas such as academic publishing or even the commercial art world. It is generally a good idea to have some experience of work outside university before applying to a doctoral programme, for example, in some role in a museum or gallery. Embarking on a research degree is not just about the qualification but also about developing as a person and a professional so as to be able to contribute to national and international discourses in, and perhaps also far beyond, the history of art and archaeology....

The aim of this four-year full-time (six-year part-time) research programme is the generation of a contribution to knowledge and understanding in Fine Art by means of an inquiry conducted through studio research and, where relevant, other research methods.
During the programme, students receive training in research methods and complete a research project based on a key research question. Students are also expected to:
Pursue a defined key research question through studio research.
Investigate cognate studio research undertaken by others internationally.
Explore the theoretical and historical dimensions of the inquiry through scholarship.
Collaborate with others, as appropriate, to extend the range of the inquiry.
Produce a body of work that embodies new knowledge in answer to the key research question.
Write a brief summary of the contribution to knowledge and understanding together with a reflective analysis of the theoretical and historical context of the research and a critical review of the process of the research.
