M.S/Ph.D Programme in European Studies

Registration and Qualification

A candidate for registration in the M.S/Ph.D Course Work Programme must have at least a Masters degree (minimum IInd class) preferably with a demonstrated ability to undertake high level research. Candidates are required to clear a written test and an interview. The minimum duration for presenting a Ph.D. level dissertation is three years and for an M.S dissertation two years.

Students are initially enrolled on a provisional basis for a two-semester course work in European Studies. After completing course work they submit their thesis plans for approval by Karachi University’s Board of Advanced Studies and Research (BASR). The students are then enrolled as full fledged M.S/Ph.D students. On the recommendation of the supervisor a thesis can be converted from M.S into Ph.D after considerable work has been done on it.
