In Research in Public Administration and Organizational Science you will gain knowledge about societal problems and critical challenges for organisations in the public domain.
This programme focuses on the new challenges that public governments at all levels face. These flow from long-term trends such as globalization, changing information and communication technologies, climate change and societal fragmentation caused by migration, individualisation and cultural pluralisation.
You will study the core theoretical themes in Public Administration and Organisation Science, such as public policy, public management, bureaucracy and public service, and human resource management. You will also get a solid foundation and advanced study in the fields of philosophy of science and a wide variety of research methods.
