Cross-disciplinary teaching and skills development
A doctor is never recruited based on disciplinary expertise alone. This is why the Doctoral College of Sorbonne University offers a course programme with more than 80 different courses allowing doctoral candidates to diversify their knowledge and develop their skills beyond their disciplinary field.
Pedagogical organisation of courses
The courses offered are not merely courses. They are part of a proactive approach that requires a commitment on the part of the doctoral candidate. Some themes include course cycles. A course cycle is a group of pedagogically-consistent courses. It generally begins with an awareness seminar followed by in-depth workshops.
The seminar begins the course cycle. It is usually given in large groups. Its objective is to deal with the "theoretical" or general aspects of the subject.
In-depth workshops are aimed at small groups (10-12 people). They make it possible to examine the subject in-depth thanks to practical applications, case studies, adaptation to the individual situations of the participants.
