PhD studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology

Two people discussing.

All eight faculties at Lund University offer third cycle studies, including the Faculty of Social Sciences. PhD studies are an important part of the University’s mandate and responsibility, and as a doctoral student – as PhD students are called – you are an important part of research at Lund University.

The Department of Sociology runs PhD studies in the subjects of sociology and social anthropology. Around thirty doctoral students work at the department and we normally admit new doctoral students once a year. For more information on PhD studies, consult the Handbook.

When there is a PhD-position open, you will find information on Lund University web page for Online Job Vacancies.
