Doctoral College in Humanities and Social Sciences

Students holding flags to celebrate new doctors

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.

The work is led by the Vice Dean, in consultation with the Committee for Research and Research Education (KFF). 

Activities arranged by the Doctoral College

  • One-time annual admission for doctoral students in September
  • A selection of courses focusing on generic skills
  • Seminars/workshops


HS Doctoral College comprises the following courses. The courses are given in English, every third semester.

The courses can be combined with modules that provide subject-specific contents (under development). See also the university page for doctoral courses.
