Which academic title can I obtain at the Graduate School?

In most cases (i.e. in the humanities) you will be awarded the academic title "Dr. phil." upon successful completion of the doctoral programme. This also applies to doctoral dissertations written in the field of cultural anthropology, which  are supervised at the University of Regensburg.

In the field of sociology, LMU München awards the title "Dr. rer. soc.".

The title of "Dr. iur." can be obtained at the University of Regensburg completing a Ph.D. in Public Law.
Usually, this requires the candidate to have successfully completed the state examination. For further information consult §5,2 the doctoral regulations (.pdf) of the Faculty of Law at the University of Regensburg.
