Doctoral Degree in Social Sciences and Philosophy

A doctoral degree (Dr. phil.) in the fields European Ethnology/Cultural Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Religious Studies, Sociology and Cultural and Social Anthropology is supported and examined by the Faculty of Social Sciences and Philosophy (Faculty 03). If you are interested in obtaining a doctoral degree, please contact the professors who teach the relevant subjects. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your dissertation project and clarify further content-related questions. Once you have found a professor who will serve as your advisor, you can formally submit your application to the Faculty 03, c/o Dean’s Office to become a “doctoral candidate”.

The Research and Doctoral Committee, which meets three times per semester, proves the application, accepts the students as a doctoral candidate and admits them to the doctoral examination process; for a schedule of the faculty boards, please go to the Board Calendar.
