What will I learn?
In the BA degree course in Political Science, you will deal with political players, institutions and processes, the political culture of various countries and selected fields of politics. You will examine how political players understand their roles and the motives by which they are driven, how their actions are restricted by political institutions and how political power is exerted. Moreover, you will develop empirical and analytical, professional and methodical skills. These skills enable you to develop innovative research questions and to compose written works, which are theoretically and methodically profound. Students acquire the ability to grasp political and social problems, to work out practical solution strategies, to present them convincingly and to advocate them argumentatively.
