ph.d.-programme (doctoral degree)

PhD in Social Work

PhD in Social Work

This PhD programme will be discontinued from 1 August 2018 and will continue as a specialization under the new PhD programme in Social Sciences.


About the programme

The final course plan for the PhD Programme is to be shaped in joint consultation between the candidate, his or her supervisor and the Department, depending on the thesis area of research and the candidate's individual requirements and wishes.


Applications for admission to the PhD Programme are to be completed in cooperation with the intended supervisor. Applicants are therefore requested to contact the Department of Social Work.

The study plan consists of one part that is specific for the PhD-programme in Social Work, and one common part shared by all PhD programmes at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Technology Management.


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.
