Doctorate/PhD Level

WU offers a German-taught Doctoral Program in Social and Economic Sciences, and a PhD program in Economic and Social Sciences (for academic staff members), which can also be taken in English. The Institute for Sociology and Social Research is actively involved in both programs. Institute faculty members teach courses in the doctoral program, including courses on qualitative methods or sociology, and in the PhD program, which includes a specific course portfolio in the field of socioeconomics. Institute faculty also supervise dissertation projects on a broad range of topics from different disciplines.
