Course Outline

Full-time studies

PhD studies consist of a course component and a thesis component. Many of the courses are based on individual work and demand close co-operation with the supervisor. Some subject courses and all general courses will have contact meetings. Not all the general courses will be offered in English every year. PhD students must participate in the PhD seminars throughout their studies. The official full-time study period of PhD studies is four years.

Core course components

The central forum for the History PhD students is the special seminar organised for them where they can present and discuss their projects. The students are supervised in other fields of academic work: taking part in a conference, giving a presentation, writing (and reviewing) articles etc. The most important part of the teaching process is carried out on an individual basis. 

The History curriculum (2017/2018 academic year) is available here.
