Program Overview

Program Description:
The PhD in International History is a challenging degree tailored for outstanding students with a strong commitment to these areas and a proven ability to carry out independent research work.

The PhD programme is small by design and admits a limited number of students each year. The size of the programme and close contact with professors offer an intimate and highly stimulating environment in which to grow intellectually. This specialisation is a recognized and well-established platform for advanced graduate research in international history and politics. With a large diversity of research and professional interests, the faculty members offer research supervision in a wide range of subjects.

Apart from formal research supervision from their doctorate supervisor (a professor of the International History academic unit), doctoral students can expect wider intellectual support at all stages of their research.
