Educational Science is a multidisciplinary scientific field. With its breadth and complexity, it can accommodate a range of educational disciplines and sub-disciplines. Additionally, it also covers educational research, which is anchored in both the social sciences - notably psychology and sociology – and the humanities.Educational Sciences encompasses research on learning, teaching and education within various social institutions. Questions related to learning / teaching / education in kindergartens, schools, families, areas of leisure and workplaces are relevant areas for knowledge development in this scientific field. As a result, the doctoral programme is open for a wide spectrum of PhD projects.The programme is managed by the Department of Education and Sports Science, but runs in close collaboration with departments and centers at the faculty. The PhD in Educational Sciences is a result of the faculty’s wish to further develop the currently defunct PhD programme in Special Education.
