HGGS stands for Heidelberg Graduate School for the Humanities ("Geisteswissenschaften") and Social Sciences ("Sozialwissenschaften") and for innovative, interdisciplinary research at one of Europe´s top-ranking institutions, the University of Heidelberg. Its aim is to provide a structured PhD experience that draws on the productive use of existent cross- and interdisciplinary research at Heidelberg University and generates new research projects in a range of strategic areas.

Interdisciplinary dialogue is of particular importance at the University of Heidelberg, which has generated four main research areas as part of its Excellence Initiative, the so-called "Fields of Focus".

The HGGS Graduate School is a strategic nexus for Field of Focus 3:"Cultural dynamics in globalized worlds" and Field of Focus 4: "Self-regulation and regulation: individuals and organizations" as it comprises the faculties and specialist research groups working in these areas:
















The Graduate School offers an enriching programme for PhD students from all participating faculties and specialist research groups, supporting them with access to an excellent national and international network in higher education, annual international conferences and through a generous course offer with interdisciplinary seminars, lectures and workshops.
