The PhD Programme in Psychology is prescribed as 60 credits (1 year). The final course plan for the PhD Programme is to be shaped in joint consultation between candidate, supervisor and the Department of Psychology depending on the thesis area of research and the candidate's individual requirements and wishes.
The PhD Programme offered by the Department of Psychology aims to provide academic support and supervision in the candidate's thesis work so to qualify for research activity or other work that requires an advanced degree of academic insight. The Programme aims to provide a basis for an independent, critical and mature perception of one's own and others' research through studying theoretical and methodical subject areas, as well as providing practice in communicating research results in academic- and other forums.
The Department of Psychology offers teaching with the aim of providing insight into theories and methods that are necessary when working on the thesis. The Department of Psychology offers both courses that are supervised, with individual curricula that are affiliated to theory or method, and courses that are more concrete, emphasising quantitative / qualitative methods of research.. The courses offered with individual curricula vary thematically, with the subject matters dealt with in each individual doctoral thesis.
The thesis is to contribute to developing new academic knowledge and be of a quality that makes it viable for publication within the said academic field. Theses that consist of a collection of articles are normally to consist of 3-6 articles.
