For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:
A bachelor’s degree in political science or an equivalent degree with a minimum of 60 credit points in political science.
The admission is limited.
The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.
The research-oriented master’s program in political science enables students to expand and deepen their expertise through specialization in a subdivision of the discipline. Specialization choices are in the following areas: theory of politics (that is, the foundations of political structures and processes), international and transnational relationships, and regional studies and comparative analysis of political systems and fields of politics. In this program, knowledge of theory-related, methodological, and empirical political science is deepened.
