The PhD program provides rigorous professional training in Caucasian languages, literatures and cultures, political developments and history in a supportive atmosphere and interdisciplinary framework. Students are trained to do research that seeks to discover the region’s complexity and dynamism and earn the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). You have the opportunity to take courses in Caucasian Studies and other disciplines of your interest (e.g. political science, anthropology, linguistics, Slavic Studies, Indo-European Studies, etc.) and languages courses in Georgian, Russian or Turkish.
Our faculty and stuff guide and monitor your studies and provide high quality supervision. For the PhD thesis every postgraduate student is guided by at least two suitably qualified supervisors who are actively engaged in their area of research.
