Interdisciplinary Ph.D. studies

The interdisciplinary Ph.D. studies „Society – Environment – Technologies" in English is a programme of Ph.D. studies made up of 10 thematic units, which are shown in the following table:

The total number of hours planned for these studies is 270 hours of classes. Apart from completing the programme of the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Studies, students will also realize programmes of Ph.D. studies foreseen for them by their original Faculties.

Some of the courses will be held by visiting professors – world class specialists in their disciplines.

The programme of the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Studies is based on the learning outcomes that can be achieved as a result of the didactic process. These outcomes define the profile of a graduate, describing what, after completion of the proposed programme, a graduate knows, what he is able to do and who he is (what attitudes he shows). The learning outcomes were developed on the basis of the National Qualifications Framework.

Recruitment of students for the project IPhDS SET will be carried out by the Recruitment Commission, based on regulations for the recruitment of students among students from the following Faculties of Jagiellonian University, who completed the 1st year of Ph.D. studies in the normal mode: (1) Chemistry, (2) Biology and Earth Sciences, (3) Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science, (4) Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biotechnology, (5) Mathematics and Computer Science, (6) History, (7) Management and Social Communication, (8) Philosophy, (9) International and Political Studies; and among students from other universities, who completed the 1st year of Ph.D. studies in the normal mode at another university and were permitted to transfer to one of the JU Faculties participating in the Project.

In the years 2011 to 2015, as a competition, there will be a maximum of 80 students accepted to the program each year, and to the best 60 there will be given a scholarship in the sum of PLN 2000 monthly, which may be received for 3 years. The participants of the program will be obliged to complete the 3-year program of the classes held in English.
