I just want to ask that is there any university in India or outside India which is able to award Ph.D. in Hinduism. As whatever I searched on Google, there is no university in the India. Please suggest if there is any.

  • There is no PHD in hinduism, the most important limbs of hinduism are available for formal studies these are Sanskrit language , Vedas.

    @Yogi I think you can do a PhD in Indology or Hinduism studies. Aug 8, 2015 at 15:02
  • Mentioned answers are good resources to find doctorate programs. I am having two specific subquestions: 1. if I want to pursue PhD on specific area, say on Lord Shiva, Is it possible? 2 I need remote Phd programs from India to anywhere. If any idea, please give hint,

Yes, Hindu University of America offers a Doctoral Degree in Hinduism: http://www.hua.edu/doctorate_programs.php


the topic of religion comes under term "Philosophy" and there are many Indian universities offering doctoral studies on any subject including Hinduism. You need google using the key word "Phd + Philosophy". alternatively you can also search using term "Indologist'

You can browse the weblink apaonline.org/?page=gradguide which has data on philosophy education programs primarily in USA and other locations.
