Overview

The doctoral programme in political science is the highest-level study programme which allows students to gain independent experience with research and studies, as well as an internationally comparable doctorate in political science. Its necessity from the perspective of Latvia’s state interests is closely linked to the further existence and development of political science as a discipline of science in the country. Doctoral studies in political science have become significant institution for creating highly qualified cadres in Latvia, and in certain fields – international relations, ethnic relations – in the Baltic region as a whole. The aim of the doctoral programme in political science is to train highly qualified specialists who can engage in scholarly work and teach political science. The degree is intended to be fully internationally comparable, allowing graduates to participate in and contribute to international debates and academic fora. Currently doctoral programme offers specialization and thus students elaborate their doctoral thesis in one of the sub-disciplines – comparative politics, international politics, political theory or public government and administration. The study programme allows each doctoral student to develop as an individual, taking into account the student’s interests, education, experience and achievements. The doctoral study programme involves the studies as such, as well as independent and original research work. The doctoral study program in political science programme at the University of Latvia envisages 76 credit points (114 ECTS) for completion of the PhD thesis out of 144 credit points (216 ECTS), which should be gathered also in other related activities, e.g. theoretical courses, courses on the relevant sub-field, publications, pedagogical work, internships in foreign universities and research institutions, participation in summer schools etc.
