Master of Arts "Political Science"

 Since 2013/14 our Department offers a four-semester M.A. degree course in ‘Political Science’. Students may begin their studies in the winter or the summer semester.

What we offer

  •  Small courses (only seminars and colloquiums, no lectures).
  • Four courses on the logic of research as well as quantitative and qualitative methods prepare students to conduct their own research.
  • Possibility of choosing a specialisation, for example in the module ‘Independent Studies’.
  • A broad educational experience through courses based on the latest research on political theory, comparative politics and international relations.
  • A practice module and the opportunity for one or two semesters of study abroad.

We would like to welcome you to our Department. Information on the M.A. in ‘Political Science’ is provided on the following pages.
