In this one-year programme, you will acquaint yourself with the state-of-the-art in political science and work on your academic skills. You will be able to choose from a number of elective seminars, covering more political science subdisciplines. Under certain conditions, doing an internship is an option. A research thesis, written within a thesis seminar specific to the area of political legitimacy and justice, completes the programme.
All courses are taught in small groups, allowing for personal contact with your fellow students, as well as your instructors.
