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 eleven 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.

In 2016 a decision was taken to have closer collaboration between research education subjects within the Faculty of in Humanities and Social Science. Since 2017 the following activities are arranged by the Doctoral College:

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

The work is led by the Committee for Research and Research Education, headed by Professor Magnus Boström, Vice Dean, in consultation with the Faculty Board. The Committee for Research and Research Education is presented below.
