PhD Studies


After the successful completion of one of these degrees students may proceed to obtain a PhD in all subjects of the Faculty of Philology and History. Part of the PhD studies are scientific and inter-disciplinary colloquia and graduate classes. They are embedded in Elite Courses and Competence Centres. PhD students will be looked after in a very personal and individual manner. The PhD studies are integrated in the Graduate School for the Humanities and Social Sciences which combines the postgraduate programmes of the three Humanities Faculties: Faculty of Philology and History, Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences, and Faculty of Theology.

The PhD regulations (Promotionsordnung) of the Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Philology and History are applicable to any PhD project. In the first instance you may consult the Merkblatt für Promotionsvorhaben for the Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Philology and History at the University of Augsburg.
