The Doctoral School is built on four different programmes: Ancient History, Medieval Studies, Modern History, and Comparative and Contemporary History.

Research areas cover cultural studies, paleography of scripts in several languages, history of popular culture, history of ideas, history of political thought, and historiography. Many of our graduates have attained fellowships at various universities, research centres and in departments of different universities; others hold highly valued positions in government offices and public education.
