Course detail

The programme distinguishes between four types of courses: substantive courses, methodological courses, advanced research seminars and finally thesis preparation in the Thesis Laboratory.

Format

The programme features a selection of two specialisations: Political Science or Public Administration. While each course or seminar within the specialisations deals with a specific topic or field of research, the programme grants you considerable freedom to pursue your own specific interests. Regardless of the choice of specialisation, you will attend several courses on the philosophy of science and courses on both qualitative and quantitative methods of research. In addition, there are specific courses aimed to enhance skills such as presentation and reporting.

The end product of the programme is a thesis meeting the criteria for publication in a scholarly journal, as well as a proposal for further research that conforms to the standard criteria of funding agencies.

Careers

During this research master’s you are equipped with a large set of analytical skills, versatility and academic experience that make you a prime candidate for many career areas, including business organisations, government organisations and non-profit organisations. You are especially fit for research-intensive positions in the public or private sector, such as governmental organisations or research agencies requiring advanced research skills and research experience. The programme is also an excellent preparation should you be interested in a PhD position.
