Doctoral Program Classical and Ancient Studies (PAW)
The Doctoral Program Classical and Ancient Studies (PAW) unites the skills of the subjects related to ancient cultures from a total of seven faculties (Catholic and Protestant Theology, Law, History, Philosophy, Cultural studies, Languages and Literatures) that are involved in the Munich Center of Ancient Worlds (MZAW). The aim of PAW is to improve the quality of the doctoral training by targeted promotion of individual talents and subject-specific skills, with elements aimed at academic qualification and with a structured supervision concept. The problems, methodological approaches and results of the various participating dissertation projects are integrated from the very beginning into a broader theoretical and historical context by means of accompanying interdisciplinary courses. In addition, regular colloquia allow an exchange of information and ideas amongst the participants and with the professors and lecturers.
