The application period for the European University Institute’s (EUI) Doctoral Programme is now open. The deadline for submitting applications for the next academic year is 31 January 2015.

The Department of Political and Social Sciences (SPS) offers a four-year doctoral programme with specialisations in political science, sociology, international relations and social and political theory.

The Department places a strong emphasis on the theoretical and methodological tools required for PhD research, and it favours a multi-faceted approach to research projects and doctoral theses, many of which cut across traditional academic boundaries. The Department also offers its researchers strong support with specific methodological issues such as comparative research design, statistical methods, and survey research.
