Ph.D. Study Departments
Ph.D in Learning Disabilities
Students in this program will be awarded a Ph.D. The aim of the doctoral program of the Department of Learning Disabilities is to train researchers from higher education institutions in a specific aspect of the subject of learning disabilities. The Ph.D. program in the Learning Disabilities Department does not qualify graduates to evaluate and treat learning disabilities.
Doctoral students must take a limited number of advanced courses while the program mainly involves writing a research proposal, conducting the research, and writing the dissertation, all under the guidance of a personal supervisor from the department’s faculty. The program is spread over approximately four years and the university offers grants for outstanding students. In exceptional cases, a student may be accepted to the direct doctoral track which includes a Master of Arts (without having to write a M.A. thesis). This track is offered to particularly outstanding M.A. students from the department and acceptance to this track is rare.
