Upcoming courses and events for the students of the Doctoral Programme in Theology and Religious Studies.

Doctoral Programme's annual Symposium

Doctoral students’ peer activities

Members of Doctoral Programme in Theology and Religious Studies  are especially active in organising activities and co-working situations for peer doctoral candidates. The Doctoral Programme in Theology and Religious Studies supports this kind of innovative and from-ground-level-up- thinking with a great pride.

One example of peer activities is the Researcher's Coffee Meeting on every month's first Tuesday at 2 pm. at the Faculty of Theology, Vuorikatu 3, Helsinki. For more information about the peer activities, please join 'Teologian tutkijat'- Facebook-group

Internationalization and mobility

The key aim of the Doctoral Programme in Theology and Religious Studies is the integration of its students into the international scientific community so that all students are able to recognise their place in it regardless of their research topic. The programme promotes integration by charting existing international networks and relationships, and by actively establishing new contacts with institutes of higher education and research communities outside Finland as well as with Finnish scientific institutes abroad.

The aim is that all the doctoral students would spend abroad at least couple of months during their doctoral studies. These studies may be independent research work, attending particular courses or getting a diploma.

The course catalogue for the doctoral programme is available in WebOodi.
