About the study programme

The Doctoral Programme of Philosophy enables students who have completed a master’s programme (or another equivalent study programme) to write an independent and innovative academic paper in the form of a doctoral thesis. Doctoral students are to be introduced to international-standard research in the humanities as they uncover new research findings on their own.



„Completing a doctoral thesis in the humanities is much more than simply writing a final paper – it’s a distinct period of your life, with its own qualitative, emotional and intellectual fingerprint. “
