PhD Studies at Graduate School

A hub for Graduate School doctoral studies


Welcome to Graduate School's hub for PhD Studies! 

About Graduate School's PhD Studies

Graduate School is an interdisciplinary department within the faculty of Social Sciences that has a hand in coordinating a number of courses from the faculty that are available to you as a doctoral student. These range from purely PhD courses, to courses on the master's level with complementing PhD syllabi, to other master's level courses that in many cases can be converted to credits toward your eventual degree. The only Social Sciences PhD level courses that we do not help coordinate are those from individual departments not offered on the faculty level. For any inquiries about such courses, please contact the respective departments offering them. 

How to Apply

Your application to our PhD Courses varies depending on your status (as an LU or non LU PhD) as well as the level the course is offered on (master's or doctoral). We encourage you to read the following Guide to PhD Studies at Graduate School for complete information on the process, to know how exactly you should apply.
