CES Programme

M. Phil. /Ph. D. Programme

Every year, the Centre for European Studies plans to admit about ten to twelve students in its M.Phil. Programme. Admission to the M.Phil./Ph.D. Programme is by an annual entrance examination and viva voce. The main objective of the programme is to prepare candidates for inter-disciplinary doctoral research on Europe. The M.Phil./Ph.D. research in the Centre is of high-quality, both in rigor and relevance. Since the research in the Centre is interdisciplinary in nature, efforts are made to expose students to other social science subjects which go beyond their parent disciplines. Learning of at least one European language (apart from English) is a critical component of the research programme of the Centre In the newly emerging globalizing international environment, the emphasis is given to broad social science concepts along with specific European issues. Apart from empirical research on Europe, students are also encouraged to develop skills in broader theoretical research and analysis. While selecting research themes on Europe students, instead of restricting themselves to some limited empirical features of a specific European country, may expand their research with the broader theoretical concepts in their lead disciplines as well as in the international relations theory.

Eligibility: Candidates with Master's Degree in Political Science, History, Economics, International Relations and Area Studies with at least 50% marks; or Master's Degree in Humanities and other Social Sciences with at least 60% marks or Master's Degree in Natural Sciences with at least 65% marks are eligible to apply for the entrance examination. The admission to the programme takes place once a year in the Monsoon Semester. Further information regarding eligibility and admission announcements can be checked from the University website.
