Sociology Examining Board

This page provides you with general information from the Sociology Examining Board, announcements, application forms, typical resolutions, etc. Please address applications in written form and with careful justification to the Chair of the Examining Board.General queries can also be sent by email. The chairperson decides on routine cases within a short period. Other cases are discussed by the Examining Board, which usually convenes once per semester. The processing period for such requests might therefore be longer. Please also note that announcements by the Examining Board are shared via the  Sociology mailing list.
