Oslo Summer School in Social Sciences for PhD candidates

Oslo Summer School in Social Sciences has been discontinued. 

The Oslo Summer School of Social Sciences offered PhD courses in the social science field such as Psychology, Economics, Political Science, Human Geography, Sociology, Social Anthropology and Research Methods. 



Professor Fredrik Engelstad initiated the summer school in 1992 in order to further international contact among students and researchers working within comparative social science. From a relatively small summer session back in 1993, with 7 course modules offered and only about 55 PhD students participating, the Summer School during the last 10 years have had between 180 and 220 PhD students each year. The last summer school was held in 2021.
