PhD in Exact Humanities
It is a research programme with emphasis on the dissertation work. To ensure the necessary depth and breadth in the area chosen for research, students are required to do course work and clear the qualifiers. Typically students plan their PhD study based on their background and in consultation with their program chair. Upon clearing the requirements and the acceptance of their research proposal, the student works on the thesis, and its successful defense leads to the degree.
The PhD Program in Exact Humanities is primarily devoted to fundamental research in Humanities, and aims to conduct de-novo research in understanding human elements and human society. Such research would engage in trans-disciplinary inquiry spanning varied domains of human knowledge and imagination. Looking beyond contemporary boundaries of knowledge, the program seeks to draw insights from the Indian analytical traditions as well as from modern theoretical activities. The research environment of the program is designed in close proximity with research activities in computer science and ICT. The program encourages development of Digital Humanities encompassing Arts and Social Sciences.
PhD program is of two types - (1) Full time residential program where students stay in the campus through out the program period except for field work if any, and (2) Part time program where students stay in campus in the first semester after joining PhD and one more semester later.
