This is a joint degree program organized by the University of Freiburg and the Institut d’Etudes Politiques (IEP), Aix-en-Provence. The courses are taught in French at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques (IEP) in Aix-en-Provence and in German at the University of Freiburg. The degree is conferred by the University of Freiburg. The goal of the course of study is to provide students with the knowledge and abilities necessary for engagement with normative foundations, political processes, and decisions and for critical analysis of the functional logic of political institutions, processes, and systems. These skills are practiced within the context of a six-month internship. The field “applied political science“ encompasses the three subdisciplines of political science: “comparative political science,” “international politics,” and “political theory.” In addition, the program places special emphasis on comparative political culture. The interdisciplinary and comparative approach facilitates a rapid understanding of problems and allows students to orient themselves quickly in various topics. The academic and pedagogical experiences in the German and French higher education system offered by the program also promote the acquisition of cultural skills.

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
