About the programme

The PhD Programme in Sociology aims to develop the candidate's qualifications in work that requires an advanced degree of scientific expertise. 


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 Sociology and Political Science.

Study plan for the PhD programme in Sociology

The study plan consists of one part that is specific for the PhD programme in Sociology, 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.
