The Ph.D. program in Sociology aims to prepare students to carry out high-quality research in economic sociology and related social areas. In order to achieve this goal, we offer courses in sociological theory, methodology, stratification, economic sociology, and subject area topics. Ph.D. students are supposed to take part in research seminars from the beginning, where their topic is discussed and developed.

The program includes the following specialization areas:

Economic sociology - Migration studies - Financial culture of everyday life –

Corruption and social norms –Subjective well-being – Information technology and society – Local society – Unemployment - Labour market – Social policy –

Social aspects of European integration – Elites - Entrepreneurship –

Deliberative and experimental methods - Networks, trust and social resources

The work of the Ph.D. student is controlled by a tutor, whose task is to advise the Ph.D. candidate during the research. The degree-acquiring process includes three elements: to pass the doctoral rigorosum, to write and defend the proposal, and to write and defend the final doctoral dissertation. The final dissertation has to be defended in front of a committee, including the opponents with written evaluation of the thesis.
