The individual doctorate is the classic route to a doctorate. With such a doctorate, the doctoral candidates choose a research topic with the support of the doctoral supervisor and work independently, mostly on an individual basis.
It is also possible to do a cumulative doctorate at the IfS. This form of doctorate can be individual or structured. Further details can be found in the fourth regulation for changing the doctoral regulations [de]. If you have any questions, please contact the doctoral advisory service (e-mail).
