Human Sciences Doctoral Programme

Since January 2017, there are four multidisciplinary doctoral programmes, each of which is related to one of the doctoral training committees. Every doctoral student belongs to one of these four doctoral programmes. The main role of the doctoral programmes is to organize some of the field-specific training. The focus of the Human Sciences Doctoral Programme (HS-DP)  is on interdisciplinary doctoral training across human sciences.

The HS-DP serves primarily the needs of the following 4 doctoral degree programmes:

Educational Sciences


Economics and Business Administration


The study requirements can be found via the links above. For further information, please follow the link and contact the person responsible for the degree programme and/or discuss the details with the (potential) supervisor(s).
