Doctoral programs at the UIII are designed to produce expert thinkers and researchers. Doctoral students are required to fully master the main theories of the study program they have selected. They must also correctly understand all of the more specific theories relating to their field or specialization. At this level, students must already understand and be able to fully apply methodologies developed in their respective disciplines.
Compared to the graduate programs, the UIII doctoral programs require complete mastery at the level of theory and methodology, as well as in-depth knowledge regarding the subfield or specialization of the student’s primary interest. Graduates of doctoral programs are being prepared to become expert researchers who can innovate and generate new thoughts and findings.
