Interdisciplinary Doctoral School

of Social Sciences and Humanities

Our Interdisciplinary Doctoral School is an umbrella structure for various paths of gaining a doctoral degree and activities related to the third level education available at SWPS University.

Interdisciplinary Doctoral School

Teaching paths

The interdisciplinarity character of the School stems from four disciplines, including: psychology, sociology, cultural studies and literature studies.

Disciplines

Interdisciplinary Doctoral School comprises three research institutes: the Institute of Psychology, the Institute of Social Sciences, and the Institute of Humanities, which orgnize the process of doctoral promotions and public defences of doctoral thesis.

Internationalization

Our Interdisciplinary Doctoral School is currently undergoing an intense process of internationalization. We are developing new English modules and courses, in cooperation with numerous international institutions. Additionally, we participate in international tenders that provide funding for doctoral education, such as: H2020 International Training Networks, and the European Social Fund (through NCBiR).

Admissions

Admissions to IDS are open to non-Polish nationals. Please note that at this time, English is the language of instruction for only 30% of the courses. This, however, provides a great opportunity for international candidates to use Erasmus programs to enroll in doctoral courses to top up their ECTS points and fulfil their course obligations.

Currently the Interdisciplinary Doctoral School offers five paths of doctoral education:

  • Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program (until December 31, 2023)
  • Doctoral School of Social Sciences and Humanities (established 2019/2020 following the new legislation on higher education)
  • ICT & Psychology in cooperation with Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology (program in English), funded by the European Social Fund
  • Industrial Doctoratesupported by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MNiSW)
  • External/Extramural Doctorate (in Polish: doktorat eksternistyczny)

Doctoral
Students’ Council

The Doctoral Students’ Council (DSC) is a student organization that supports the needs of doctoral students, brings together doctoral students of all faculties and years of study, represents the doctoral student body at various forums at SWPS University and provides a platform for a variety of initiatives supporting doctoral students and alumni.

Our goals

Members of the Council represent doctoral students at various official bodies, including the Scholarship Commission, the Commission for the Financial Support of Low Income Students, the Research Committee, the Inter-Faculty Committee for Disciplinary Procedures, the National Representation of Doctoral Students and Warszawskie Porozumienie Doktorantów (the Warsaw Association of Doctoral Students).

Our goal is to support doctoral students in the process of developing their careers. We are the bridge between doctoral students and the authorities of SWPS University and of the SWPS University Doctoral School and we are also fellow travelers on the challenging road towards doctoral degrees.

Doctoral Student Conference

Twice a year (during the summer and winter semesters) the Council organizes a Doctoral Student Conference. An active participation in the conference is one of the requirements of the doctoral program and at the same time it provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their first research findings and achievements. Additionally, the Conference provides a space for interdisciplinary discussions and for learning about research conducted in other disciplines of study.

Team building and training trips

The Council organizes team building and training trips that allow doctoral student to integrate and to learn from each other and from the alumni. These events serve as a forum for best practice sharing so that new students could learn from the experiences of their older colleagues and apply the learnings while working towards their own doctoral theses.
