The doctoral programme contributes to the societally relevant educational research. The research topics deal with current phenomena of education and society, and they are studied from critical viewpoints.

The School of Education’s research profile is defined according to its educational orientation by the following four focus areas:

  • transnational learning and social environments
  • educational policies, cultures and structures
  • work and professional growth
  • teaching and learning in life course

The research activities increasingly take place in research groups and thus the doctoral researchers will be integrated in the groups of the School.
