The Hertie School offers a three year doctoral programme with a focus on governance and public policy. The programme offers rigorous academic training in research design and familiarises students with cutting-edge theories, methods and concepts in the field of governance. Participants will learn the tools of policy analysis and how to apply them to policy problems across fields and in different domestic as well as international contexts. The programme is targeted at applicants with a strong foundation in either economics, law, political science, sociology, public administration, management or related fields. It offers a stimulating academic environment for candidates interested in exploring modern governance in an interdisciplinary and international context.
The programme is closely associated with the Hertie School’s Research Clusters (Political Economy, Global and European Governance, and Organization, Management & Leadership). Doctoral candidates will be linked to one of the Clusters.
