  • Syllabus


    At the start of the year, the different research lines of the EPCV, FPED, and HEI-Lab will be presented to students, with a special focus on the research lines and the new or ongoing research projects of the PhD supervisors. This deeper contact with the research developed by the faculty aims to enable students to identify their research interests and propose a PhD supervisor. After selecting the supervisor, students will start their autonomous study on the subject of their thesis, with a special focus on the main conceptual frameworks and research methods. The further development of specialized knowledge of the selected theme/domain, along with the skills developed in the courses of Advanced Research Methods and Data Analysis, will result in the PhD project at the end of the academic year.
