Program Structure

The Doctor of Philosophy curriculum includes compulsory course work, preparing research proposal and objectives, research work and progress, pre thesis and thesis defense.

The course work is composed of five components, namely, Research methodology, Advanced Research methodology, Doctoral Foundation Seminar, Doctoral Concentration Seminar and Research & Publication Ethics. After successful completion of coursework, the research scholar works in close coordination and under strict supervision of his / her research guide and prepares the research proposal and identifies the objectives of the research work. Progress of the research work is reviewed every six months and finally the scholar submits his thesis and defends it. The Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) closely mentors and monitors this whole process.
