Programme highllights

While the Philosophy, Arts and Society programme at the University of Helsinki continues to foster research on traditional topics of its respective fields, it also actively encourages interdisciplinary approaches.

Key research areas

The programme’s research encompasses topics such as the nature of reality as a whole and how, through individual observation and inquiry in the scientific disciplines, the world can be known. Questions dealing with scientific explanation and scientific reasoning are among its staples.

The topics also include the examination of values and virtues, the generation of knowledge concerning the human being and societies as well as the ethical and political questions embedded in such knowledge. The research topics also address the nature and functions of fictional worlds and the relation of these worlds to conceptions of reality. The specific characteristics of textuality, figurality, musicality, and representation in general are among the programme's key research areas.

Programme Structure

  • A doctoral degree in the programme comprises of a doctoral thesis and 40 credits of additional studies. The studies are divided into discipline-specific studies, aimed to support your research project, and transferable skills training.
