Doctoral studies

The School of Global Studies offers doctoral programmes in Peace and Development Research, Environmental Social Science and Social Anthropology. The aim of our doctoral programmes is to enable doctoral students to conduct high-quality research in our three research areas.

Our programme is four years, the first of which consists largely of courses and the other three consisting of work on an academic dissertation.
During the doctoral studies, students participate in the department's research seminars and research groups, and have the opportunity to teach.
