Doctoral Studies (Third Cycle)

The department offers postgraduate (third cycle) education in the following subjects:


The ambition of the department is that the postgraduate studies will give a solid knowledge within the fields of philosophy, linguistics or theory of science. The studies will also give excellent skills in independent research and to publish their work in international journals as well as teaching skills. In addition, our postgraduate students are trained in the crafts of modern research, as conference presentation, networking and collaboration across national, subject and language boundaries. The postgraduate students are also prepared in the art of bringing research to the community and to participate in the public debate. The postgraduate studies can be conducted on a variety of conditions, but the most common is that a graduate either has a funded position from the faculty of arts or is working in an externally funded research project.
