PhD Programme

 

Doctoral research, conducted under supervision of Titus Brandsma Institute staff

Senior institute staff are involved in various doctoral studies as either promoters or co-promoters.

Depending on the particular field of expertise of the doctoral student and their chosen promoters, research is conducted from a form-descriptive, a mystagogic, a hermeneutic or a systematic angle, or a combination of angles. Below is a summary of current doctoral research, compiled early in 2005.
