About the Course

After creating the Integrated Master's Degree in Organisations and Work Psychology, and after the European Master on Work, Organisational and Personnel Psychology (WOP-P), sponsored by the European Commission through the Erasmus Mundus programme, in the promotion and formalisation of which it participated, forming for this purpose a consortium involving the universities of Barcelona, Bologna, Coimbra, Paris V and Valencia, the University of Coimbra now presents its new doctoral course in Work, Organisations and Human Resources Psychology.

This doctoral programme aims to train professionals and researchers engaged in Work, Organisations and Human Resources Psychology, contributing to providing them with updated and relevant knowledge in an area that has constantly and consistently been growing in prominence, awakening increasing interest and acceptance, thus showing high growth capacity.

Based on models that are a benchmark in the European context of the specialty, this doctoral course will value rigour and relevance - scientific rigour in the research produced and social relevance of the knowledge generated. It will also constitute an alternative to the”traditional” form of holding a doctoral dissertation because, instead of being developed in seclusion, this doctorate allows and promotes interaction and collaboration between doctoral students and the teaching staff, as well as their integration in the NEFOG research teams (Organization and Management Study and Training Centre) together with their lines of enquiry. Through the network of national and international contacts in which this Centre is integrated, the doctoral programme presented here will further contribute to the internationalisation of the research carried out within it, either through visiting professors or through the opportunity for the doctoral student to obtain a "European Doctorate".

Course Outline

The study cycle is worth 180 ECTS and lasts a minimum of three and a maximum of five years.

The curricular componente, named the Advanced Studies Programme, is worth 60 ECTS, and the preparation of the thesis is worth 120 ECTS.

On passing the curricular part of the study cycle with course the student will be awarded a Certificate of Advanced Studies in the scientific field, and the speciality and thematic area of the course.

Students of this doctoral programme can apply to obtain a European Doctorate, according to Resolution No. 88/2006 of 27 September, of the University Senate. The degree of "European Doctor" supplements and does not replace the PhD degree awarded by the Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences of the University of Coimbra. For more information about the degree of European Doctor and conditions of access to it, please download here.
