About the conferment
The very first conferment ceremony in Finland took place in 1643 at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Royal Academy of Turku, and the practice has survived through academic history to this day. Traditions are held in high regard in the ceremony, although the ceremony evolves with time.
The first Conferment Ceremony at the Faculty of Social Sciences took place in 1950, and the conferment ceremony is held anew every five or six years — whenever 50 years have passed from a prior ceremony of the same faculty. The ceremony of 2016 marks the jubilee of the Conferment Ceremony of 1966.
