The Masters programme in political science offers advanced studies in the discipline’s main fields: comparative politics, international relations, political theory and development studies. The programme is designed for students who want to deepen their knowledge in theoretical approaches and train their skills in policy analysis and quantitative and qualitative methods. Its aim is to prepare students for a career in public service at home or abroad, or to pursue further academic studies.
The programme’s broad approach to political science opens for insights and perspectives on the political, economic and social challenges that globalization has engendered. The subject-courses convey relevant knowledge of contemporary phenomena in politics, public administration, regional integration, political and welfare state economy, and normative problems in contemporary society. The methods of teaching are developed to train students’ analytical and conceptual abilities, capacity for critical thinking as well as oral and written presentational skills.
