Contents and focus of the degree programme:

During the doctoral programme the students learn to independently discuss current questions in the disciplines and to implement them in concrete research projects in order to successfully participate in academic discourse by contributing their own independent research work. To make this possible doctoral students are taught a comprehensive understanding of theories during their degree as well as methodological skills needed for academic work between and with different disciplines.

Definition of the field of studies

The doctoral programme “PhD Law and Politics” brings together research and teaching in law and politics on the doctoral level, combining subjects and disciplines. The problem-oriented understanding of the correlations between law and politics is an essential requirement for the scientific further development of theories and methods in these disciplines and thus serves to develop basic research at the universities further. This approach moreover is application-oriented and thus of great importance for scientifically funded legal and political consulting.


The degree course concludes with a dissertation, the presentation and defence of the planned dissertation project before a dissertation committee, the defence and the completion of the compulsory subjects.
