Candidates admitted to the structured doctoral model Integrated Track are supervised by a team of three researchers and participate in a curriculum that includes, among other things, the attendance of regular meetings with one of the interdisciplinary graduate classes.
a.r.t.e.s. addresses excellent graduates of the humanities who are still in the process of developing their doctoral dissertation projects.
