The doctorate in Human Sciences, Heritage and Culture groups together every line of research relating to the humanities at the University of Girona. This means that it offers doctorate students an opportunity to work and train in a wide range of disciplines, in highly active research groups that take part in competitive research projects, mostly with support from a consolidated research group (SGR), and which enjoy an extensive network of international contacts. This doctorate (and its predecessors) have continuously received awards for quality and excellence since 2005.
It is therefore an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary doctorate that covers a very wide range of research subjects. They all share, however, a rigorous approach and up-to-date methodologies, applied to the soundest and most productive research trends in today’s humanities.
The intellectual curiosity, rigour, critical spirit and keenness to work that are expected of doctorate students on this programme will find a stimulating space, then, for developing in, active groups that will act as guides and references, a programme of research seminars and workshops that will broaden their horizons and a network of national and international contacts that will encourage their mobility and possibilities for scientific dialogue.
