Doctoral Programme

NCCR LIVES is developing a doctoral programme intended in the first instance for doctoral students in social science and psychology who include life course issues in their work. The doctoral programme aims to provide courses of study leading to high-quality doctorates within a reasonable period of time and to facilitate the professional integration of doctoral students in academic and other careers. The LIVES doctoral programme is organised over a period of three academic years, due to the three to four modules each year. It includes three types of modules:

  1. Methods and concepts in life course analysis
  2. Scientific research skills
  3. Practice in research
