About the PhD School at the Faculty of Humanities

The PhD School offers international PhD programmes at the highest academic level, covering a wide range of fields within the humanities. The PhD School collaborates with researchers in many research and academic fields in Denmark and abroad, and with external stakeholders in the private and public sectors as well as in organizations.

The PhD School provides supervision, PhD courses with lecturers from Denmark and abroad, opportunity for study abroad and opportunity to work with researchers in other countries.

Graduates of the PhD School have a high employment rate. Many of them are employed in the education sector but employment in other sectors is also widespread,  e.g. in the civil service, in archives, libraries and museums, and in the private sector, NGOs and cultural institutions.


Associate Dean for Research and Impact Dorthe Gert Simonsen is the head of the PhD School and responsible for the PhD programme. She is supported by the PhD Committee, which is made up of an equal number of academic staff and PhD students, and by the PhD coordinators.
