About the study programme

This doctoral programme teaches and fosters theoretical understanding and methodological skills for academic work in the fields of cultural and social studies and the humanities. It focuses on the cultural manifestations of human existence and responses to it. The skills acquired are valued in research contexts in cultural and social studies and the humanities, as well as for practical roles in a wide range of professional fields. There is a strong emphasis on methods of empirical sociological research, as well as hermeneutic, casuistic, and reconstructionist approaches based on the analysis of texts, images and interactions.
