Doctoral School in Humanities and Social Sciences (HYMY) is one of the four doctoral schools established at the University of Helsinki. The doctoral school is multidisciplinary by nature and consists of eleven internationally and nationally networked doctoral programmes.
HYMY aims to provide systematic, efficient and high-quality doctoral training. The courses cover academic topics as well as transferable skills and career planning. Each doctoral candidate has a personal supervisor. When working full time, the aim is to complete the doctoral degree in four years (net time).
