Ph.D. in Sociology is an advanced level of study in which a candidate has to conduct independent research and produce a thesis that demonstrates a contribution to knowledge in the field.
The Degree is assessed on the basis of the thesis only and the candidate has to satisfy the Department of Sociology and the Faculty of Humanities that the thesis is his or her own unaided work. Upon submission of the final thesis, he or she has to give an undertaking that it has not been submitted to any other institution for examination and the granting of a qualification.
Access will be considered for a candidate who is in possession of a university-based Master’s qualification in Sociology/Industrial Sociology on NQF Level 8. If a student does not comply with the requirements mentioned above, admission may be granted by the Dean of the Faculty, at the recommendation of the Chairperson of the Department.
The Department must specifically approve of the field of study, the research topic, methodology and problem statement before the candidate may register.
