PhD programme

The PhD programme in Economic History aims to give the PhD students scientific schooling and a profound knowledge of economic history. The programme comprises four years of full-time studies and lead to a doctoral degree (240 higher education credits). Students may also obtain a licentiate degree (120 higher education credits) after two years of full-time studies.

The PhD students will, during the programme, take courses, participate in seminars and play an active part in the research environment, as well as in planning and implementing an individual research project. Each PhD student will be appointed a principal supervisor and an assistant supervisor.

The knowledge and skills acquired by licentiates or doctors of economic history form a firm foundation for future activities in research and teaching, or in public administration, trade and industry, the mass media, archives and libraries, etc.

There are four different research fields in which groups of researchers cooperate.

  • Business History
  • Macroeconomic history
  • Labour, migration and population
  • Environmental economic history

Announcements of PhD positions usually take place during spring, with programme start in September. PhD positions are announced on the University of Gothenburg’s website.
