Spring and Summer Schools

Tübingen's Spring and Summer Schools follow a long-time tradition.

The Graduate School of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences has been inviting graduate students and young scientists from Tübingen and other universities to its spring and summer schools for several years.

Those who have to write a thesis on an empirical study, face a number of different writing tasks: How to offer my research idea vis-á-vis a funding agency? How to do fieldnotes? What kinds of writing is appropriate in analyzing empirical material? How do I appropriately present my findings in an international context? During the schools these topics are presented by experienced and internationally renowed scholars with whom participants discuss, try out, and reflect on adequate writing practices for the phases of their research projects. There will be workshops, in each of which participants have the choice between active and passive participation.

Please note that all workshops are held in German.
