The Universities of Geneva (UNIGE) and Lausanne (UNIL) offer advanced training to supervise the completion of a doctorate in the field of social psychology. In the long term, the doctoral school makes it possible to obtain a doctorate common to both universities.



The training is spread over six semesters and is essentially aimed at stimulating thesis work while promoting openness to various theoretical currents. In addition to being part of a research team, it includes a strong methodological component and a more thematic component in different areas of social psychology.

The curriculum consists of modular courses, interlaboratory meetings, internal seminars and dissertation work. The modular courses consist of thematic modules and methodological modules taught in French or English mainly by visiting professors, and interlaboratory meetings taking place on a conference format where doctoral students and established researchers present their research. Internal seminars are a place where doctoral students discuss their current work with local teachers.
