The Doctoral Programme in Social Sciences is a collaborative effort between a number of the social sciences at the University of Helsinki that aims to create the best research environment for doctoral training. It covers the widest areas of social science research in Finland: media and communication studies, social and cultural anthropology, social psychology, social and public policy, social work, sociology, statistics, criminology and demography. The Faculty of Social Sciences, to which all these disciplines belong, also has a new Centre for Research Methods, which aims to provide the most innovative methods to support the social science research being done at Helsinki.
