Funded by the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal and State
Governments, the Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies will
admit up to ten new students to its next doctoral programme, which begins
on *1 October 2017*.

The formal prerequisite for application to the programme is a university
honours degree reflecting a level of attainment that is above average
(typically an M.A., or diploma degree, with a grade of “very good”; with
ranking, where applicable). The degree should be in one of the disciplines
represented at the Graduate School (see List of PIs with an overview of
their specialist fields and areas of research). Candidates are expected to
submit an outline of their proposed dissertation project (maximum 6 pages,
with a summary of no more than half a page), to include a short description
of the topic, the current state of research, and its theoretical and
methodological orientation, as well as a preliminary work schedule and an
indication of whether the work is to be conducted via archival or field
research.

As English will be the primary language of communication, students are
expected to have advanced English-language proficiency. In addition,
students must demonstrate proficiency in the language(s) relevant to their
projects. It is assumed that language skills can be improved over the
course of the doctoral programme.
*The deadline for application for commencement of studies in October 2017
is 15 November 2016.*
