BGHS Working Paper Series 5/2020
Melanie Eulitz, former member of the BGHS-Office has published the article "Übergang zur Promotion. Das Shortcuts-Programm der Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS) als Instrument zur Karriereplanung" [Transition to doctorate. The Shortcuts Programme of the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS) as a tool for career planning] in the BGHS Working Paper Series.
The transition from studying to a doctorate can also be understood as a transition from students to scholars. The paper explores the question of how this transition can be designed in universities and what measures are helpful for the prospective doctoral researchers. The interlinking of financial and academic support is reflected on the Shortcuts programme of the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS). The decision to do a doctorate is understood as a process that requires both information and reflection. What is also decisive is the exchange within the group, which is discussed by the example of the programme module “peer coaching”. (Abstract of the Article)
