Programme Description

The Department of History and Civilization encourages our Ph.D. researchers to think beyond boundaries, offering them exceptional opportunities to study global connections within early modern and modern European history. Each of our researchers works closely with both a supervisor and a second reader in the department. The careful and expert supervision that we provide gives researchers the necessary support for their research, as well as confidence to work independently, to shape their research, and to develop their careers. Our Department encourages a culture of conversation among researchers and faculty. Professors and researchers work together to develop ideas and each year, we invite experts from around the world in numerous fields to visit our department to discuss their research. Their presence offers our researchers remarkable possibilities to interact with a range of experts in their different fields. It encourages Ph.D. researchers both to increase their understanding of their own topics as well as to join scholarly networks, as they learn to develop and discuss their work.


The policy of the EUI is not to offer individual guidance and advice on dissertation proposals. Do not contact potential supervisors but read the information on research themes and indicate one or more professors who could supervise your dissertation in the application form.
