DPCMTJ2 Theoretical and methodological studies, 10 ECTS

Learning outcomes

After completing the course unit, the students have a broad-based, multidisciplinary knowledge of the theoretical and methodological discussion related to communications, media, music and theatre research. They have formed an opinion on the nature and social relevance of the discipline and the significance of research to this process.


The theoretical and methodological studies can be completed e.g. with examinations, essays, reading circles or courses by the Doctoral School of the University of Tampere. They may include studies in the philosophy of science, or they can be completed with scientific articles not included in the dissertation. Other completion methods, such as teaching one’s own research topic or lecture passports are also possible. The completion of theoretical and methodological studies is agreed upon with the supervisor.
