Doing a doctorate at the Faculty of Humanities

Dear doctoral candidates and prospective doctoral candidates!

Do you wish to do a doctorate, but do not know, how the registration takes place and how the further process will be? Or are you already in the doctoral process and have a specific question? On this page we have compiled all the important information for doing a doctorate at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Göttingen.

Essentially the doctoral process mentored by the Faculty of Humanities has either an individual procedure or structured procedures (in interaction with research training groups (DFG Exzellenzinitiative)). You can make a selection from over sixty disciplines. The formal admission requirement is the proof of a completed university education (Master, Magister, Diplom (German university degree)).

If you have further questions relating to this or would like to proceed with your registration, the responsible contact persons from the examination office would be glad to assist you.

We would be happy to welcome you as a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Humanities!
