Doctoral Programme in History, Culture and Arts Studies - for the Doctoral Candidate
In addition to the research evidenced in the dissertation, the postgraduate degree comprises studies (40-60 ECTS credits). More detailed information about the contents of such studies can be found in the postgraduate curriculum of Juno. The contents of studies will be agreed upon during the application stage while drawing up the preliminary postgraduate study plan.
After the studies begin, a personal study plan (HOPS) should be drawn up and the contents of the studies planned in detail and discussed with the supervisor. The plan is made in Peppi and it should be accepted by the coordinator and supervisor in UGIS-system.
The aim of the studies of 40-60 ECTS credits, that form a part of the postgraduate degree, is to accumulate the knowledge and skills needed when completing a licentiate thesis and/or a doctoral dissertation. Thus, the timing of the studies should be borne in mind when setting the research agenda – by the time the dissertation is ready for pre-examination the studies should be completed and entered into the study register.
The doctoral researchers can ask for study credits from conferences, teaching, publications etc. by filling in the electronic form. The study modules included in the postgraduate studies are not graded.
Before submitting the dissertation manuscript for pre-examination, the postgraduate student has to complete the postgraduate studies worth 40-60 ECTS credits. Exceptions to this rule can be made for special reasons.
