PhD Programme Southeastern Europe

The focus is on Southeastearn Europe through interdisciplinary exchange and methodological support of the participants. Furthermore, internationalistion is one of the main emphasis of the programme. Therefore, the programme facilitates study and research trips to other universities, as well as regular visiting lectures.

What we offer

Students will participate in four doctoral colloquia that will take place once per semester. These are held either as intensive block seminars over several days or as regular classes during the semester in either English or German (based on the need of participating students). Students will be able to present their current stage of research. In addition, regular events and seminars will be held for students, including the brownbag seminars and the lecture series of the Centre for Southeast European Studies. Participating students are encouraged to present their research at least once at a brownbag seminar. In addition, further classes will be offered to doctoral students in German and English.
