The main purpose of the Humanities in the Contemporary World doctoral program is to develop a network of internationally specialized researchers in the different areas of study and research in the Humanities, and to continue and expand the Lines of Research being conducted in Humanities departments and other related areas of knowledge, at the three CEU Universities (San Pablo, Madrid; Cardenal Herrera, Valencia; and Abat Oliba, Barcelona). The three universities will implement the program jointly.

The Program revolves around three main axes:

  • Culture as the foundation of community in history.
  • The dissemination of culture in history.
  • Culture as heritage and legacy.

The aim is to ensure that the three axes promote specialization in all humanistic knowledge (History, Literature, Art, Philosophy, Pedagogy, etc.).
