How long does the full-time ECT Ph.D. program take?

The program is designed to be completed in four years. However, since the program is largely dependent on becoming a professional scholar and completing a dissertation, not on coursework, it can take longer. All Ph.D. students are continuously enrolled in our doctoral colloquium, which serves as a research-supportive community; doctoral students become part of a research community from their first semester, and continue to draw on the support of that community until they defend their dissertation.
