This work is to widen the boundaries of knowledge in the relevant special field and thus to contribute to the progress in the dissertation subject.
This goal is to be achieved by completion of the compulsory modules in the curriculum, where particularly the module „Scientific Basics/Core Skills of the Thesis Topic“ offers the requirements to research-oriented subject matter.
The modules „Analysis of Own and External Research Results“ and „Core Subject“ convey the current state of research. An addition to these skills (e.g. project management, professional presentation of scientific contents) guarantees the module „Generic Skills”. Graduates of the Doctor of Philosophy Programme have a systematic understanding of their research discipline and research methods of this field.
The programme concludes with a dissertation which is to be supervised by a team of supervisors and is completed by an oral exam taken before an examination board. Graduates are awarded the academic degree „Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)“.
Expected Learning Outcomes for the Doctorate

Junior academics possess the competence to develop and conduct substantial research projects with scientific integrity, and they are qualified to reflect on these processes scientifically and theoretically. They are also aware of issues and questions in gender research.
