PhD programmes

Doctoral programmes enable students to pursue their own research interests under the supervision of their advisor(s). PhD students must report annually the status of their research, and must participate in a series of activities approved by the Doctoral Commission and designed on the basis of the different research lines.

Scholarships, grants and other funding opportunities are available from the national and regional governments and also from the University of Barcelona. The Department encourages the participation of the PhD students in conferences, seminars, workshops and any other activities that make possible the collaboration with other researchers, departments, institutions or research groups working on related fields.

Students and their supervisors can choose between two doctoral programmes:Medieval Cultures and Society and Culture.
