PhD by research via Distance Learning is awarded after successfully completing a theoretical research specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis. The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is the only doctoral degree that can be achieved through distance learning. The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University. A research thesis for these PhD programmes should be designed to improve the knowledge and understanding of literature from its different cultural approaches. Every student in the research in this area should distinguish between the various literary genres (poetry, theatre, fiction and nonfiction), as well as the main aesthetic, political, religious and social issues that have influenced and contributed to shaping the literature of all times and cultures. -

The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University. The development of this research programme should improve knowledge and understanding of English literature from its origins. Students are exposed to a variety of literary genres (poetry, theatre, fiction and non-fiction), as well as the main aesthetic, political, religious and social issues that have influenced and helped shape the literature of every era. Research in this area is not only fundamental for the future professorship of candidates to understand the literature understudy, but must also develop the related historical aspects of the English language. By mastering these concepts, candidates can gain a deeper appreciation of the development and expansion of English literature worldwide. -

PhD in research via Distance Learning is awarded after successfully completing a theoretical research specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis. The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is the only doctoral degree that can be achieved through distance learning. The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University. The human sciences underline the importance and value of the analysis of the human being from an integrated historical, philosophical and artistic perspective. Through an in-depth examination of world history, politics, religion, philosophy and art. Students in this research course should investigate how perspectives influence each other. Art is perceived as the expression of historical events and ideas governing a particular era. History is recognized as the confrontation between ideas, society and politics and their evolution. The ideas that characterize an epoch derive from the analysis of previous philosophical failures. A PhD by research should address the great crises of this century in a different way: globalization, environmental degradation, social divide and cultural clashes. -

The SOAS Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies (CCLPS) will welcome applications from MPhil/PhD students wishing to undertake research in the disciplines of Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies and Postcolonial Studies. The Centre has developed its own MPhil training programme which will enable research students to be registered in the Centre rather than in specific regional Departments or those of other disciplines. The Centre places its emphasis on the acquisition of critical theoretical skills and in-depth regional, linguistic and cultural knowledge with specific reference to Asia, Africa and the Middle East, but also to literature written in European languages. Prospective research students will have the unique opportunity to work on an exceptionally wide range of topics, theoretical and critical, supervised according to the expertise of a wide range of academic staff across the Faculty and SOAS. A research degree in Comparative Literature (Asia/Africa/the Near and Middle East), Cultural Studies (Asia/Africa/The Middle East) or Postcolonial Studies (Asia/Africa/The Near and Middle East) normally takes three years, or up to a maximum of four years should periods of fieldwork/research and material collection be required. Part-time registration is also possible. -
