Social Sciences Doctoral Studies Programme

At the same time the B.A. and M.A. programmes were introduced, the Doctoral Studies Programme at the Faculty of the Social Sciences was restructured.

In accordance with the threefold structure of the new study system as envisioned in the Bologna accords, the faculty has designed a scheme for the joint education of graduate students in the restructured Social Sciences Doctoral Studies Programme; its objective is to provide a maximum degree of mentoring and support to the doctoral students. This programme was accredited along with the B.A. and M.A. programmes and launched in the winter semester 2006/07. Moreover, the Göttingen Graduate School of Social Sciences (GGG) gives doctoral students the opportunity to acquire additional knowledge in their proper subjects as well as in the neighbouring disciplines.

Application Deadline
Doctoral students wishing to commence their doctoral studies programme in summer semester need to submit their application documents to the office of the Dean of Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences by March 15th. For the winter semester, the deadline is September 15th.

Acceptance as a doctoral student in accordance with § 8 of the Doctoral Degree Regulations as of 17 October 2005 cannot be granted any longer; any doctoral examination will take place in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Social Sciences Doctoral Studies Programme.
