PhD in Sociology Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University (FSV UK)
The Ph.D. study program Sociology is focused on scientific inquiry, independent creative work, and deepening of theoretical knowledge. The aim of this program is to prepare the students for a scientific career and teaching in the field of basic and applied research.
The program supports the development of sociological thinking, especially as a scientific discipline composed of both basic research in the main fields of social sciences and applied research. The students must prove their knowledge of present-day theories and methodology and also their ability to contribute independently to the science with new knowledge that meets internationally recognized standards. The variants of the graduate profile lead to scientific careers or teaching at tertiary level, analytical or expert work (in consultancy agencies, market and media research, think tanks, individual organisations or corporations). The graduate also receives training suitable for employment in science and research, education, and organization and management.
