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:
- One-time annual admission for doctoral students in September.
- Seminar series for doctoral students
- A selection of courses with focus on generic skills:
- Research Ethics and Good Reseach Practice (5 credits), spring term 2021
- Qualitative methods (7,5 credits), spring term 2020 (course plan is under revision)
- Quantitative methods (7,5 credits), autumn term 2020 (course plan is under revision)
- Philosophy of Science (7,5 credits), spring term 2021
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.
