With the beginning of the winter semester 2017, a doctoral preparatory program has commenced at the Max Weber Center for Cultural and Social Studies. As part of this program, two MA graduates started their work in various projects at the Max Weber Kolleg, in order to gain the skills and knowledge they need for the interdisciplinary projects planned as PhD projects.
The program offers intensive mentoring by Fellows of the Max-Weber-Kolleg for 6 to 12 months. It is aimed at students who have an excellent MA degree and are seeking an interdisciplinary doctorate in the context of Weber's research program.
The program has a highly modular structure and offers individual support for the participants, in which the needs and goals of the candidates are supported by a mentor. The result of the program will be the creation of a project outline, which will enable a successful application to doctoral programs.
More about the PhD preparation program:
Applications are accepted until August 30 (for the winter semester) or February 28 (for the summer semester) of the year. The program starts at the beginning of each semester. The contact person for applications is Dr. Elisabeth Begemann.
