During the course of their studies, students produce a dissertation. The thesis must contain original and significant research results. There are two possible types of dissertation for the PhD in Religious Studies - a monograph and a collection of studies.

See Dissertation: 2 types and format.

Doctoral state examination and dissertation defence

The State Doctoral Examination in Religious Studies (SDZ) is held in the 5th or 7th semester of study at the latest (taking into account the time of any interruption) according to the recommended curriculum and is different from the dissertation defence, which is held at the end of the study.

Both study events are preceded by preparation and have their own specific course and requirements.
