History

A PhD, also known as a Doctor of Philosophy degree, is a doctorate awarded by a university to the academic who has met all necessary qualifications and can now be considered a doctor in his or her academic field.

A History PhD can be taken to be an enrichment to one’s understanding of the various social and traditional, cultural backgrounds of people. The history course requires some prerequisite training in the field as well as research aspects on the same. You must also have a master's degree in history which is within merit and also accepted by the universities.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
