Doctorate in History, Studies of Security and Defense

ISCTE-University Institute of Lisbon

Program description

History, Studies of Security and Defense

The PhD program in History, Defense and International Relations is organized by ISCTE-University Institute of Lisbon in partnership with the Military Academy. It was conceived as a continuation of the Master program with the same name and organized by the same institutions.

Its main objectives are to provide students with comprehensive and systematic knowledge in the fields of History, Defense and International Relations. Each student would develop a specialization in one of these areas with the choice of a final dissertation topic.

Throughout the curriculum structure of the course, students should acquire research skills and methods associated with the scientific fields mentioned above. On the other hand, the preparation of the dissertation will enable the students to conceive, design, and develop significant research in compliance with requirements imposed by the standards of academic quality and integrity. At the same time, the dissertation should be a work of original research that contributes to extending the frontiers of knowledge in the scientific fields of the program.

The PhD program in History, Defense and International Relations will also provide students with tools for critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis of new and complex ideas in the various scientific fields that are part of the program, the acquisition of skills to enable communication with their peers, the academic community and society in general about the area in which they specialize, and the acquisition of capacity to promote academic, professional, technological, social or cultural knowledge.

The course will have six semesters and it is structured around three core seminars: the History Seminar, the Seminar on Defense and Security and International Relations Seminar. These seminars are part of the first two semesters of the doctoral course. 

In order to make this Ph.D. program diversified and plural in its scientific approaches, there will be a Multidisciplinary Lecture series, with the collaboration of some of the most reputable national and international experts in the areas over which the program focuses.
