Postgraduate studies at the Department of Economic History

The aim of the PhD programme is for our PhD students to learn how to critically and independently assess economic-historical research tasks and contribute to the development of research by producing a doctoral thesis. The PhD student is expected to aquire knowledge of social scientific and historical methods and theories. He/she is also expected to develop pedagogical skills. This prepares our PhD students for further challenges in research and education, public or private administration, mass media, museums, archives or libraries.

A PhD degree is equivalent to four years of full-time study, including courses (75 academic credits) and research for the doctoral thesis (165 academic credits). This leads to a docotral degree.
