Research proposals should relate to the empirical analysis of the following research areas and topics. Cross-cutting topics and methods as well as comparative designs are welcome.

Membership at the BGSS and its doctoral programs is contingent on the successful completion of the annual curricular milestones.

Admission

Admission is based on academic excellence and is open to students with a Master’s degree or equivalent in social sciences (sociology, political science, and neighboring disciplines such as economics). We expect high-level knowledge of current theoretical debates in the social sciences. Precondition for the application is the documentation of in-depth knowledge of quantitative or qualitative techniques of social research, the commitment to empirical research, and English proficiency at an academic level.

Applicants who successfully passed the selection procedure need to secure doctoral funding in order to start the program. BGSS invites candidates to simultaneously apply for outside sources of funding, such as the DAAD, Erasmus Mundus Funding and fellowships from foundations.
