Third-cycle subjects

The Research School of Health and Welfare has a transdisciplinary basis. As a doctoral student you can choose to deepen your knowledge in any of the following subjects:

Transdisciplinary efforts aim to provide an increased understanding of different subjects and professions within health and social care. In turn, this benefits the collaboration, and focuses on the needs of the individual or patient.

This third-cycle education programme leads to a Degree of Licentiate of Philosophy,  or a Degree of Doctor of Philosophy within the specific subject. Doctoral students write their licentiate or doctoral thesis from a transdisciplinary perspective.

This third-cycle education programme includes courses at third-cycle education level totalling 30 credis for a licentiate degree and 60 credits for a doctorate degree. Furthermore, the doctoral student writes a licentiate thesis comprising 90 credits or a doctoral thesis comprising 180 credits.
