The Public and Social Policy (PSP) doctoral study programme prepares students for basic and applied research and teaching in the academia as well as other types of activities requiring a high level of theoretical and methodological education in PSP. This programme is open to all master degree graduates or equivalent. The admission proceedings take the form of oral discussion over a written research proposal and a list of literature read within the field that have been submitted by the applicant. The goal of the discussion is to verify the applicant’s ability to comply with the requirements of the PSP doctoral programme. During discussion with the admission committee, the applicant must prove the ability to defend his/her research project in critical discussion, and in particular: be able to define the cognitive problem and possible solutions precisely and convincingly and demonstrate good orientation in the field’s theoretical and methodological literature.
