Doctorate in Anthropology

A Doctorate in Anthropology usually takes three years to complete (six semesters). It includes the writing of a dissertation, which provides a significant contribution to the field and which candidates must defend in front of a panel of experts.

Students receive rigorous scientific training in the cursus ad doctoratum (semesters 1-3), which help them develop their research skills and become autonomous researchers. Thus, among the requirements of the cursus ad doctoratum, there may be a combination of course work and research.

Graduates in Anthropology will receive knowledge about the topics related to the human dignity and care for vulnerable people and the research skills in this field

In order to be admitted to the Doctorate in Anthropology candidates must have:

  • at least a Licentiate in Safeguarding or a second-cycle academic degree enabling them to undertake interdisciplinary research on human dignity and the care of vulnerable people;
