PhD in History, History PhD


History is the study of the past with primary attention to activities of human beings over time. PhD in History is an extensive academic degree awarded by many universities for hardcore research in any specific piece or detailed information of history. In a few countries, PhD in History is regarded as one of the highest degree that any person can earn as it requires extensive amount of study for long durations of time along with research on those happenings in concern. The criterion for awarding the degree of PhD to any candidate differs from place to place. While some universities may ask for detailed evidence of the study done to achieve the degree, some may ask for the thesis only and proof of the research work done. There is simply no specific order of awarding the degree of Doctorate of Philosophy. Usually the fund required for the research in this field is provided by the university or college from the student’s welfare fund.

Eligibility Criteria

In order to become eligible to undertake the study of PhD in History, candidates must at least be graduates with History as their Honors subject. Moreover, candidates having passed the post graduate level are also eligible for this extensive study.

Generally in most universities, candidates who are graduates are given a time limit of two years to do their study and research on any specific historical item and present their thesis by the third year which can be provisionally extended. Whereas, candidates who have already passed their MA are given a year less to prepare their thesis.
