International and Security Studies Doctoral Program

The aim of the doctoral programme is to function as a hub and a productive workshop for critical strategic thinking for those committed to the multidisciplinary study of International Relations and to supply the academic sphere both domestically and regionally with new generations of doctoral graduates. We are committed to help make the most of our candidatestalents and to assist them in creating dissertation works of significant added value in their field. Our supervisors and instructors represent all of the major sub-fields of the multidisciplinary study of International Relations, including Political Science, International Relations, History of Diplomacy, International Law and Area/Regional Studies and can, accordingly, support a wide range of research projects in these areas and in their intersections. We provide adequate methodological grounding to programme participants. We are working to expand our network of international connections. Our domestic position in Hungary is, in one word, central: Corvinus University’s International and Security Studies doctoral programme is the alma mater of many a doctoral graduate currently teaching at other higher education institutions in the country. At the same time, our doctoral programme also welcomes representatives of the public service and corporate spheres who look to build on their accumulated professional experience in the framework of scholarly dissertation projects that may serve the aims of developing knowledge in their areas of expertise. We also have a good number of international participants, who add valued diversity to, and enrich, the overall knowledge capital of the doctoral school, as well as contribute to further expansion of the school’s network of contacts around the world.
