Working for a Doctorate A Guide for the Humanities and Social Sciences Synopsis

In stark contrast to undergraduates, new PhD students often find no framework for study, few deadlines and little peer support. Working for a Doctorate: * Addresses the problems of the research process, such as finance and time-management * Offers practical guidance and specialist advice to both students and their supervisors * Is written by a team of experts who have had a long and successful experience of tutoring PhD students * Contains case studies of current and ex-PhD students * Explores issues such as gender, culture and the fundamental nature of the PhD. The book will be a vital guide and companion to anyone studying, supervising or contemplating a doctoral degree in the humanities or social sciences.
