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 Ph.D. program in Archaeology offers the opportunity for advanced study in the archaeology of Turkey (ancient Anatolia) and the surrounding regions. Students should be interested in specializations that reflect the expertise of the faculty including the Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman or Byzantine periods. Students are encouraged to participate in faculty on-site research at Alalakh, Barcın Höyük, Gordion, Küçükyalı, and Sagalassos among others. Field studies either at an excavation or an internship are required. The program emphasizes archaeological theory and methodology and students are given instruction in ceramic analysis, metallurgy and instrumental analysis. Partnerships with other departments at the university make available specialized instrumentation for analysis. Instruction is offered in scanning electron microscopy (SEM), petrography, micro-soil analysis, trace element analysis, metallurgy (polarizing light microscopy), GIS applications and organic residue analysis. The program also stresses the importance of cultural heritage management and public archaeology education through museums.The Ph.D. program in the History of Art combines the study of the cultural, formal and theoretical aspects of visual culture with academic and practical training in museum studies and heritage site management. Doctoral students in the program are expected to develop an academic specialization in a particular subject or era of art history in which there is faculty expertise (Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk or Ottoman). Additionally, students are expected to acquire a solid theoretical background along with the...
