If you are planning to write a dissertation with empirical and / or methodological and / or methodological focus, you are right here! We would be pleased to help with the definition of topics and the clarification of the content and formal prerequisites of a dissertation project in the field of empirical social research. For an appointment for a first meeting with Prof. Hill, please contact the Teaching and Research Area office.
The preparation of a dissertation requires patience and persistance. For this reason, you should answer a few basic questions before the first meeting:
- What is your precise sociological question, which is on your mind and which you would like to answer during the course of your promotion?
- What is the theoretical or practical relevance of your question? To which social problem or social, methodological or methodological research gap does your question relate?
- Do you already have your own access to the topic? What (theoretical) basic assumptions do you have?
- Are you looking forward to the long, exhausting - often also depleted - time of a dissertation project? If necessary, you may need further tips and help.
For formal and organizational questions concerning a dissertation project, the doctoral student in charge of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the RWTH Aachen, Marianne Weyrauch, is also at your disposal.
