Resultantly, our scholars are ahead at knowing about latest developments as well as open issues that the research community is collectively deliberating upon.
Our faculty closely works with research scholars on all phases of the research process—from idea generation and study design to data analysis and writing. The culture is collegial and informal, with students viewed as colleagues and co-authors. Moreover, students are encouraged to work with multiple faculty, which helps them widen their perspective on contemporary issues in their field.
In our PhD. Program one finds the most conducive environment to work in collaboration with other scholars, teachers and ace researchers. Our ideology is simple - collaborative teams exhibit important research outcomes, far beyond what could be accomplished by individuals working independently.
