Graduate Center of the Faculty of Social Sciences

The Graduate Centre of the Faculty of Social Sciences (GZ SOWI) is the focal point for supporting and strengthening tertiary and continuing education as well as creating and fostering networks for doctoral candidates at the Faculty. The core responsibility of the GZ SOWI is the coordination and implementation of measures for advancing the Faculty's young scholars.

The GZ SOWI is the central contact point for consultation enquiries by doctoral candidates at the Faculty of Social Sciences. It is part of the Dean's Office and supports doctoral candidates enrolled in the new doctoral programmes. The Centre encourages doctoral candidates in their role as early stage researchers by making their research visible. The Centre also organises tailor-made workshops and information sessions for doctoral candidates and early postdoctoral candidates.
