Political decisions give direction to society. But how are political decisions made? The Master of Political Science provides you with specialist, in-depth knowledge of decision-making in politics. The Master's programme is taught in English. This way you will be prepared to access the political world in which English plays an increasingly important role. The programme is open to international students and carries a workload of 60 ECTS-credits.

You will study political decision-making within and between local, national, European and international administrations from four different perspectives:

  • Citizens
  • Politicians
  • Policy professionals
  • Institutions

To understand political decision-making you should be able to adopt these four (sometimes very different) perspectives. After all, elected politicians make binding decisions for society but the participation of citizens is the bedrock of legitimate decision-making.

The Master's programme does not exclusively aim at the acquisition of theoretical and analytical insight, you will also practice some of the core skills involved in political decision-making, such as argumentation, negotiation and lobbying.
