Back of Hercules in main square in Florence, Italy.

PhD by research via Distance Learning is awarded after successfully completing a theoretical research specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis. The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is the only doctoral degree that can be achieved through distance learning.  The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University. 

The history of art studies the origin of art from the first rock paintings to the experimental art of today. A PhD thesis in this partkicvolare versantem should cover the themes of Western tradition and the cultures of the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands and the Americas. The research programme should take into account both knowledge and wisdom to bring an intelligible order to the wealth of names, periods and styles that surround us. Looking at the visual arts from a psychological perspective, it should make us see art history as a continuous interweaving and changing culture in which each work refers to the past and points to the future; a living chain that connects our artistic present with the ancient age.
