Concept

The programme of the a.r.t.e.s. Integrated Track brings together the resources and structures of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, enabling a goal-oriented graduate training programme. In the Integrated Track, the main research themes of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School are divided into interdisciplinary graduate classes, allowing each individual to refine his or her research topic in the context of the class’s thematic focus. The themes are based on the areas of excellence of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, while taking into account bodies of knowledge, discourses, model worlds and communication cultures as well as the transformation of these aspects in other contexts, with all the anthropological and ethical implications such processes entail.

After successfully completing their university studies, interested candidates should apply quite soon. The selection process has several stages. After admission, students take part in an orientation semester in which they refine their project idea, their research question and the methods they will use. In the Integrated Track, the advisory model involving three supervisors from various disciplines ensures not only excellent specialist expertise, but also a high degree of openness that transcends the boundaries of individual disciplines. In the regular sessions of the graduate classes and the yearly colloquia of all six classes, the members of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School have the opportunity to present and discuss their projects and preliminary results.
