Description of the programme: The Doctoral School of Education considers its main objective the training of new generations of researchers in educational sciences, branches of modern, empirically based social sciences. Its curriculum is centred on the fields that emerged from the traditions of the University of Szeged, i.e. research on formal education, teaching and learning. At the same time, the objective of the Doctoral School is to prepare students for engaging in a wide spectrum of research activities related to education, for applying a plethora of research methods, and for studying the social, economic and historical conditions of schooling.
The Doctoral School of Education is organised into seven closely related programmes.
