Program description

Are you interested in politics and would you like to specialize in European politics and a comparative perspective? The one-year full-time English-language Master’s programme Political Science: European Public policy might be the right choice for you. In this Master’s programme you will analyze how social, economic and political change impacts on European political systems and governance institutions at both the international and national level from a comparative perspective.

You will be instructed in current research endeavours and policy debates, explore theoretical perspectives and develop sophisticated research skills, which you will apply to the two principal dimensions in European politics. One is how national policies and political structures cope with global social and economic change and supranational decisions. The other is how supranational institutions, such as the EU are, in turn, affected by national interests and political mobilization. By integrating these two angles, students of the specialization Political Science: European Public policy will acquire fundamental knowledge and a set of skills that are in high demand for decision making positions at the levels of European and national policy making. The programme offers personalized tutoring by an internationally acclaimed staff whose research record has recently been assessed as being among the best of Europe in this field.   

This programme is accredited by the NVAO. After finishing the programme you receive the internationally recognized degree of Master of Science (MSc).

This programme is a specialization of the Master Political Science. We also offer two other specialisations in Political Science: International Relations and Transnational Governance and Global Environmental Governance.
