THE LICENTIATE IN PHILOSOPHY (Ph.L.) degree in Philosophy

This degree is intended for those students who wish to continue for the doctorate either at the Collegium Augustinianum or at another institution.

The Licentiate in Philosophy degree generally requires two years for completion. The first year of this program is essentially spent in conducting research under the supervision of a professor, and the second year involves the writing of the thesis under one's supervising professor.
