Postgraduate studies – seminars

The seminar activities play a central role in the postgraduate education.

Doctoral candidates participate actively at the general seminar. Here the postgraduate students are trained in scientific argumentation and in preparing to convey their research to the international research community. Essays or parts of the doctoral candidates’ dissertations are presented and discussed..

The general seminar is the Department’s forum for the academic discussion. It enables the Department’s researchers and doctoral candidates to conduct a joint dialogue on central research issues. Guests commonly lecture on their current research or recent publications. The Department’s researchers and doctoral students may also describe work in progress or present a manuscript for consideration. Thematic seminars are periodically arranged, and a special theme may then be treated during a series of seminars.

In addition, several other seminars are arranged by groups connected with the Department’s profile areas in research, such as the seminars on labour markets, on the sociology of emotions, feminist studies, social movement studies and science and technology studies.

Postgraduate Studies - Study plan

Supervision and individual study plans
Each doctoral candidate has a supervisor, and they jointly make an individual study plan. This contains a schedule for the candidate’s postgraduate studies and a description of the obligations which the candidate and the Department have during the time of studies. The individual study plan is supplemented with an overall financial plan.

The postgraduate studies are financed mainly with faculty funds giving the candidate employment and educational grants. Some doctoral candidates are financed by external funds within the framework of different research projects.
