Doctoral College in Humanities and Social Sciences
Welcome to the Doctoral College in Humanities and Social Sciences. The doctoral college offers activities for doctoral students within twelve research education subjects, located at three different schools.
The purpose of a Doctoral College in Humanities and Social Sciences is to provide doctoral students with a broad research and educational environment, in addition to the research environment in the subjects. The Doctoral College supports doctoral student's networks, with a social and academic community where academic exchange can occur between subject areas.
