After Completing the MA: PhD Options


Graduates of the MA Program for Peace Studies have the possibility to continue their studies at the University of Innsbruck with the Doctoral Program in Political Science. The individual admission into the Doctoral Program in Political Science is the responsibility of the Dean of Studies of the Faculty for Political Science and Sociology. Academic German language skills are an admission requirement.

The Universidad Jaumé I in Castellón de la Plana, Spain offers a Doctoral Program in International Studies in Peace, Conflict and Development. Graduates of Innsbruck's MA Program are treated preferentially when applying for the doctoral program in Castellón. The Universidad Jaumé I welcomes applicants speaking English or Spanish.

Graduates of Innsbruck's MA Program are furthermore eligible to apply for the Doctoral Program at the Institute for International Conflict Resolution and Reconstruction, Dublin City University, Ireland.

Most further doctoral programs within the discipline accept Innsbruck's Master as admission requirement, however for all Universities without a formal cooperation with Innsbruck admissions will be decided on an individual basis.
