Doctoral Studies

The Faculty of Social Science offers programmes in eleven subjects. The programmes comprise 240 higher education credits (four years) and conclude with the doctoral examination. There is also the option of taking a licentiate's examination after 120 higher education credits (two years).

The Faculty is responsible for coordination and quality assurance of doctoral studies. The Faculty Board determines issues such as establishment and phasing out of subjects for doctoral study programmes, general curricula, as well as principles within the framework of the University’s normative decisions.
