PhD-Programme (doctoral degree)

PhD in Interdisciplinary Child Research

Students are discussing

As of 1 August 2018 this PhD programme is discontinued and is continued as a specialization under the new PhD programme in Educational Sciences.

About the programme

The PhD Programme in Interdisciplinary Child Research is rooted in the social studies of children and childhood research. 


Applications for admission to the PhD Programme are to be completed in cooperation with the intended supervisor. Applicants are therefore requested to contact the Norwegian Centre for Child Research at Department of Education and Lifelong Learning.

Study plan

The study plan consists of one part that is specific for the PhD programme in Interdisciplinary Child Research, and one common part shared by all PhD programmes at the Faculty of Social and Educational Sciences.


The Faculty is to appoint the supervisor(s). When more than one supervisor is appointed, one of them is to have the main disciplinary responsibility for the candidate's work.
