Program Description

Mission

The Doctoral School represents an academic institutional structure, invested with responsibility in the administrative organization of conducting doctoral university studies within the University "December 1, 1918" of Alba Iulia, with attributions in managing the activity of the doctoral students and in promoting the research activity specific to this cycle of academic training. .

The Doctoral School aims to promote and achieve excellence in fundamental and applied research, aims to enhance the quality of university preparation, as well as to conclude partnerships in interdisciplinary research activities, at national and international level.

Given the fact that a doctorate imposes the rigor, often ascetic, of the research work, and the doctorate is himself a rigorous initiation, which does not fit anyone and to which not everyone resists, the members of the Doctoral School, doctoral students and students, understand that the doctorate represents the supreme institutional form of professional consecration. Consequently, the only evaluation criteria will be the scientific value of the approach, the originality of the thesis, as well as the seriousness, scientific and ethical probity of the doctoral student.
