Bachelor and master programmes
The Department of Political Science and Public Administration offers a range of internationally accredited bachelor and master programmes with different emphases on the politics, governance, and local, national and international policy. Within these programmes there is special attention on issues such as the welfare state and socio-economic redistribution, policing, sustainability, national and international security, and European integration.
Our education is characterized by its clear structure, intensive guidance and enthusiastic teachers, the small scale, interdisciplinary offerings and its strong international orientation shown by the close involvement of many researchers and students from abroad.
The multidisciplinary approach of Public Administration is visible in the teaching of courses on governance, organization, management, society and politics, policy and decision-making, law, culture and communication, market and government, philosophy and integrity.
The broad and international orientation of Political Science is reflected in subjects such as international relations, comparative European politics, global political economy, and political theory.
As of 2016/2017, the Department will be involved in the new, unique international bachelor programme Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE), a cooperation of the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Humanities.
