Doctoral political studies in Social Policy and Social Work

The programme of doctoral studies in Social Policy and Social Work has been integrated with other doctoral studies at the FPS. The first two years focus on studying of fundamental theoretical-methodological and scientific-professional disciplines, aimed at preparation of doctoral research. PhD students, besides mandatory courses, have the possibility for choosing the specific disciplines from the field of social policy and social work per their own affinities and interests. The third year is devoted to direct realization of doctoral dissertation: registration of the topic, research work, writing and defence.

This study programme was accredited in 2015.
