and Humanities now accepting PhD students

In exciting news for Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at Regent's, the faculty is now able to provide another area of expertise in offering PhD degrees in areas of the arts and humanities.

Validated by the University of Northampton, the PhD community is growing in HASS, with one of the first students working with Senior Lecturer, Dr Deborah Schultz, in art history.

"It is very exciting news for our current, past, and prospective students," said Schultz.

"Regent's prides itself on providing an intimate and inspiring teaching environment, and this offers another opportunity for our students to develop further and excel in their chosen areas of study. Students can now consolidate their years of study and work with experts in their respective fields. This is an exciting time in which to join a growing graduate community in the wonderful environment of Regent's.”

In order to apply for a PhD/doctoral programme you will generally need to hold an honours degree at 2:1 level or above (or international equivalent) in an appropriate subject. A higher degree such as a master’s may be required.

With an established graduate community in psychotherapy and psychology, too, Regent’s already has long-standing PhD and professional doctorate (DPsych) programmes in Psychotherapy & Counselling Psychology, as well as a range of postgraduate diplomas and qualifications in psychotherapy, mediation and counselling.
