Predoc Programme

The GCSC together with the deanships of the faculties 03, 04 and 05 supports excellent students who have entered the final phase before their MA or teacher training degree and who want to pursue a Ph.D. in the study of culture. Select courses of the GCSC core curriculum, as well as workshops and events designed specifically for this stage of your academic career will help you master the transition into the Ph.D. phase.



The Predoctoral Programme for the Study of Culture is a joint support programme offered by the International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture (GCSC) and the deanships of the faculties 03, 04 and 05 at Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU), which aims to accompany students from cultural fields of study in preparing for the contentual and organisational challenges of a Ph.D.



Target Audience

The programme is directed at excellent students in MA programmes and the advanced stages of a teacher training degree at faculties 03, 04 and 05, as well as external students pursuing comparable degrees at other universities. The main goal is to support these students by already offering an orientation regarding doctoral studies prior to graduation.


The event programme is held in German. Please find further information on our German pages.
