The purpose of the doctoral programme is to complete a doctoral thesis, a work supervised by a lecturer on the doctoral programme, which must be original and the student's own work, about a specific topic within the proposed research lines.
The content of the doctorate in in Humanities is determined by the research projects, which determine the research lines.
In the first year of the doctorate course, students must attend the activities organized by the University Institute of Culture and the Department of Humanities. These are seminars, conferences and symposia in which guest lectures participate.
