PhD coursework - Faculty of Humanities
The coursework component of the PhD-programme in Historical and Cultural Studies consists of three elements:
- Advanced studies in theories of science and ethics, 10 ECTS credits
- Advanced studies in theory and method, 10 ECTS credits
- Discipline-related element,10 ECTS credits
Advanced studies in theories of science and ethics are primarily offered as the course KULT8851 – Theories of Science which is offered by the PhD-programme in Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture. The course is normally offered each semester as three gatherings over two days.
When it comes to advanced studies in theory and method and the discipline-related element, the local courses are offered to a limited degree and the candidates are therefore encouraged to find relevant courses nationally or internationally, in cooperation with their supervisor and the Head of the PhD-programme. Local courses will be announced on our web site.
Approval of the coursework component and external courses
The coursework component must be approved by the head of the PhD-programme in cooperation with your supervisor. A complete plan for the coursework component should be handed in along with your application to the programme. If you need to adjust this plan you should bring it up with your supervisor and the Head of the PhD-programme. Confirmation of approved changes is sent to the Faculty.
If you plan to take courses outside of NTNU these must be preapproved by the Head of the PhD-programme. It is your responsibility to obtain the necessary information about the course and submit documentation to the Faculty after completing the course.
