With more than 50% of its PhD candid-
ates coming from abroad, the Graduate School has already reached a high level of internationalization, which it aims to further expand.
A growing number of dissertations co-supervised with scholars from foreign universities and formal co-tutelle-procedures indicate that the Graduate School is a model for the transnational character of the training of a new generation of scholars in the humanities and social sciences. A visiting scholar pro-
gramme and a dozen of international workshops every year contribute to the strong international exposure of all PhD candidates. The GSGAS holds numerous bilateral agreements with research universities at all continents which are the basis for close cooperation that facilitates for example field
work of our PhD candidates.
