Admissions 2012

Warsaw, February 7, 2012

Dear Master’s Graduate,

The »Artes Liberales« Academy is opening enrollment for the fourth edition of the Inter-University Program of Interdisciplinary PhD Studies (MPISD AAL). This program is a new form of education within the »Artes Liberales« Academy (AAL third level). The Inter-University Program of Interdisciplinary PhD Studies was established in 2008 and is implemented with the support of the Conference of Polish University Rectors (Resolution No. 205 of December 7, 2007 and Resolution No. 248 of March 19, 2010). The result of studying in this form of education should be an interdisciplinary doctoral dissertation and its defense at one of the universities forming the »Artes Liberales« Academy. The Academy ensures PhD students participation in interdisciplinary research as well as opportunities to teach their own original classes. We expect our PhD students to contribute actively to the development of this new form of studies.

  • a) graduates of the »Artes Liberales« Academy (AAL),
  • b) graduates of the Interdepartmental Individual Studies in the Humanities (MISH),
