Ph.D In Public Health
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) is primarily a degree for those individuals with research and/ or teaching as their goal. The degree and its requirements are overseen by the Public Health faculty as well as our adjunct faculty from Texila American University's constituent Schools and Colleges. The Ph.D degree entails coursework and independent research.
Generally, the program consists of 1-2 years of coursework, followed by 2-5 years of independent research. The coursework ensures that a student has the breadth and depth of knowledge in a particular discipline or area. The student's ability to conduct research is assessed by the preparation of a written dissertation.
Ph.D Graduates usually assume positions as faculty members and research scientists in graduate schools, medical schools, research institutes or schools of public health.
