Ural federal university: First Ever PhD Thesis in English Defended at UrFU

For the first time in the history of Ural Federal University, a PhD (Candidate of Science) dissertation was written and defended in English. Postgraduate student of the Department of Social Philosophy of UrFU Lubna Saeed defended her thesis for Candidate of Science degree in philosophical sciences at the dissertation council of the university. The work is devoted to the Islamization of the state, gender relations and everyday life in Pakistan.

“My friends from Pakistan and Nigeria, who have already studied at UrFU, advised me to apply here, because at Ural Federal there is a good research methodology and a developed research base. Earlier, while studying for a master’s degree in Pakistan, I studied philosophy of Marxism and Russian philosophy. As a result, this aroused particular interest in Russia. My scientific adviser, professor Elena Trubina, helped me a lot in all matters, she is a wonderful person, ”said Lubna Said.

The graduate student noted that the university pleasantly surprised her with its approach to students: teachers give students independence, freedom of expression. Lubna said that the most interesting part of the educational process was group seminars, where students discussed together their scientific research, ways of conducting it and solving problems.

“I will go to Pakistan and start looking for a job. And I hope that I will return to Russia from time to time. I will definitely apply all the knowledge and skills I have gained here, especially the ability to carry out scientific research,” says Lubna Said.
