The Graduate School of Social Sciences has a Board of Studies (BoS) comprising the Director of the GSSS, the Programme Directors and two student members. The Board of Studies advises the GSSS Director on all matters concerning the Graduate School of Social Sciences.
The current members of the Board of Studies are:
The Director, Annette Freyberg-Inan, is responsible for the daily management of the school: academic programmes, budgets and administrative procedures. In the international context, the director of the Graduate School of Social Sciences may be called ‘dean'.
Each programme has a programme director (faculty), responsible for the academic content and organisation of the programme. The programme director is assisted by the programme manager (supporting staff), who also is in charge of study advice to the student.
Programme directors can appoint faculty for delegated tasks in the coordination of the programme (such as track coordinators).
