The aim of the Doctoral Programme of School, Education, Society and Culture (SEDUCE) is to provide PhD candidates with an in-depth knowledge on research-based teaching and learning. The programme is multidisciplinary including students from, for example, early education to adult education, educational studies, educational psychology, home economics, craft studies, and special education. The potential doctoral candidates include national and international students with an adequate Master’s Degree. The programme also invites school and higher education leaders, reformers, policymakers, and teachers who are interested in learning theories and research methods to meet the challenges of practice, particularly those related to equity and social justice in education.
