Program content

You choose one of our six specializations within the Master's program:

Comparative Politics

Focus on political challenges faced by contemporary (non-)democracies in a globalizing world, such as growing inequalities, new demands on representative institutions, and pressures created by both migration and demographic change.

Conflict, Power and Politics

Critically explore themes such as warfare,political systems, the articulation of political demands, ethnic violence and which ethical dilemmas arise in such situations.

Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Politics

This specialization introduces you not only to issues and ongoing debates in the field of gender and diversity studies in organisations and politics. But also offers the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the state of the art in the field and to acquire knowledge of different policy practices related to it and their gendered implications.

International Political Economy

Uncover the economic and political dimensions of global issues and power struggles behind policy choices. Learn to understand and explain the world from the perspectives of different stakeholders.

International Relations

Learn how to investigate global cooperation and conflict from different perspectives and to analyse the essential players that shape global politics: governments, international organisations, media, businesses and NGOs.

Political Theory

Study various aspects of the relationship between political power and morality. The central question here is whether political principles, institutions, and practices can ever be legitimate. What may we force each other to do? What should we do?
