Detailed study programme is available here.
The study programme is aimed at all people who wish to pursue PhD level studies in history, art history and archaeology. The aim of the study programme is to give people with a master’s degree in a related field in-depth knowledge of contemporary approaches in the humanities and in cultural theory. Concerning the PhD programme in Art History we welcome first of all people who are interested in older art and interdisciplinary studies in Visual Culture.
The doctoral study programme of history was opened in 2003. It developed further according to international traditions of doctoral study organisation, introducing best practices whenever possible in the Estonian setting. As a result, the number of doctoral students has increased reasonably and evenly. Doctoral students are being supervised individually. The actual study process is partly organised in the form of general courses, whereas the reminder time schedule takes into account the individual necessities and opportunities of the student; doctoral seminars take place both as subject-based and as part of the series of seminars of the School of Humanities, and doctoral students are involved in the projects of the School and in the teaching process whenever possible. The study programme design takes into account the fact that doctoral students need to go to work and is focussed at the completion of the doctoral thesis.
A doctoral diploma enables working at employment positions that require a doctoral degree, as managers and top level experts in Estonian, EU and international institutions, also as researchers, lecturers and leading specialists in the fields of history, art history and archaeology.
Study mainly takes place in the evenings and at weekends, e-learning is available. Many courses can be completed in agreement with the professor at a time suitable for both parties.
Thesis proposal should be submitted for preliminary review to maris.peters....at....tlu.ee and accepted and signed thesis proposal should be uploaded to Dreamapply with other documents.
Admission exam (interview) is based on the plan for the doctoral thesis that is agreed with the prospective supervisor.
