13 PhD Programs in Area studies 2023

Overview

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

The term area studies is generally applied to a variety of social science and humanities fields. Area studies utilize multiple academic fields of research to examine the geography, politics, and culture of a particular locale.
