In compliance with current French legislation (see decree: Arrêté du 7 août 2006 relatif à la formation doctorale (pdf - 38 Ko)), the objective of our Doctoral School ED 481 Social Sciences and Humanities in Pau is to provide training for research and by means of research carried out by those Ph.D. students in the field of social sciences and humanities. By means of quality courses (lectures, conferences, seminars, summer schools etc.) and forefront research carried out with renowned research centres or hosting teams of experts, our aim is to train specialists in the following domains: law, economics, management, humanities, languages, arts and sports. We also provide structured support to help the Ph.D. student gain access to the workplace.
This means a triple task for the Doctoral School ED 481:
- organising the training of Ph.D. students at the UPPA in the social sciences and humanities for a professional career,
- offering Ph.D. students a pluridisciplinary culture by means of a coherent scientific programme plan,
- monitoring the coherence and international visibility of all Ph.D. courses on offer at the UPPA.
