The courses of the core curriculum are, as a rule, compulsory for all participants in the PhD program.

The supplementary courses, on the other hand, are optional and can be taken, after consultation with the lecturer or the mentoring team, according to the interests of the student.

Please also check the universitary calendar (Vorlesungsverzeichnis) yourself, especially all affiliated study courses, i.e. Religionswissenschaft, Religionsphilosophie (Fakultät 10) and the individual Institutes of the Department for Asian Studies (Fakultät 12) for other relevant and interesting courses. The three Institutes are Indology and Tibetology, Sinology and Japanese Studies.
