The Project

The Berlin Graduate School for Transnational Studies is a cooperative project of three outstanding scientific institutes and institutions: the Freie Universitšt Berlin (FUB), the Hertie School of Governance (HSoG), and the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB). BTS provides a distinctive platform for ambitious, innovative, and cutting-edge research in transnational and international relations. Our programme is strategically placed at the intersection of political science, economics, history, law, and sociology, where the most exciting changes and debates in an era of globalisation and fragmentation take place.

BTS offers young researchers the unique opportunity to collaborate with an exceptional group of scholars from three diverse and renowed institutions. Our students pursue their research and intellectual growth in an exceptional environment designed to encourage cooperation and stimulate new ideas.
