Doctoral Degree Political Science

PhD Studies at the Institute of Political Science (IfP)

Master graduates may complete a doctoral degree in social sciences (Dr. rer. pol. or Dr. phil) at the Institute of Political Science.

A doctoral degree is awarded on the basis of a doctoral thesis (to be published and defended in an oral examination) presenting an independent research finding. English is accepted as a language for the thesis as well as for the oral examination.

In order to take up doctoral studies you are required to find a supervisor at the Institute. Potential supervisors will expect a research proposal with your application.
