A variety of doctoral programs are available at the Faculty of Sociology. The Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS), a collaboration of the Department of History and the Faculty of Sociology, offers a structured and multifaceted PhD program. It is also possible to complete a doctorate without enrolling in a course of study. In this case, an annual presentation in a relevant colloquium or PhD seminar is required as well as biannual meetings with your supervisor and formal progress reports. The international PhD program and doctorates outside a course of study are regulated by the PhD regulations of 1 July 2015.
Doctoral dissertations from 2007 are listed here.
