Beginning in 2004, the independent Ph.D. Philippine Studies programs of the Asian Center (AC), the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy (CSSP), and the College of Arts and Letters (CAL) of the University of the Philippines, Diliman, were formally incorporated into an interdisciplinary doctoral program. The joint program was established as the Tri-College PhD Philippine Studies Program, with the Asian Center tasked to serve as the central secretariat and headquarters. A Philippine Studies Council and a Coordinating Committee oversee management of the program, from curriculum review to dissertation defense and student relations. Depending on their area of specialization, program of study, and dissertation, students will take their courses at and from the Asian Center, the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, and/or the College of Arts and Letters.Click here to view the list of UP faculty affiliated with the Ph.D. program. The list is as of December 2014.
The current program coordinator for CSSP is Dr. Vicente V. Villan.
