Teaching Opportunities

At BIGSSS, didactic training and teaching are integral components of the doctoral program. Especially for doctoral candidates who aspire to careers in academia, teaching experience is of great importance.

BIGSSS PhD fellows, in cooperation with faculty, teach BA or MA courses which are chosen (and designed) by the fellows themselves and are usually closely related to their dissertation. BIGSSS PhD fellows are supported in their teaching by a didactic seminar.

Depending on the PhD program you opt for, teaching is a mandatory or optional component of your doctoral education at BIGSSS.
