Final state doctoral examination and defence of the doctoral thesis

The state final examination in the field of general linguistics is oral. It consists of three topics: in the first part, the general theoretical knowledge of the linguistics methodology is determined, in the second part the student demonstrates the ability to apply the appropriate methodological framework on the spot, in the third part, the student demonstrates the appropriate solution of the pre-specified problem.

Requirements of the study

Student's study is guided by a given individual study plan and consists of several parts: on the one hand, common methodological seminars in which he will get familiarized with the methodological frameworks of the field (structural, generative, formal-semantic: LgDM01 and LgDM02 Methodology of formal / structural linguistics) (LgDA01 to LgDA08) , on the other hand doctoral seminars (Doctoral Seminar I-VIII), and partly from the part entirely individual, when he / she will be lectured for lectures offered elsewhere (LgDB01- 08 Special lecture I-VIII) or lectures from experimental specialization (LgDEA09 Experimental syntax and semantics). The aim is, of course, to help the student with the preparation and processing of the doctoral thesis so that it fulfills (at least) the requirements normally required for linguistic dissertation in the European context. Courses directly related to the proper completion of the studies are Theses (LgDS02) and Doctoral Thesis (LgDS01). The obligatory part of the curriculum is also the prescribed publication outputs (at least one article abroad and one active participation in a foreign conference: LgDP01 - LgDP03) and pedagogical practice. Another way of presenting the results of the study will be to participate in the so-called doctoral day (LgDEA19 and LgDEA20 Doctoral Day I and II), where the doctoral students will publicly present their results before the professional audience, including foreign experts. In addition, PhD students choose at least one foreign language course (CJV_D_A, CJVAST and LgDEA21 English for Doctoral Studies, English for Study and Internship Abroad and Foreign Language (DS) - a publication and a paper). Compulsory subjects have a total credit endowment of 185 credits, obligatory optional 157.
