Political Science

Master of Arts (M.A.)


Is there a just political order? What are the possibilities of legitimacy? What principles must be observed in a democracy? How do political systems evolve? To what extent do mass media represent the fourth estate in democracy? Would you like to find answers to these questions and also deal with political structures, processes, institutions and organizations? Then study political science at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg!
At the University of Freiburg, you will get to the bottom of the history of political ideas, deal with national and international politics, acquire organizational and media skills, and conduct your own research on political science issues.

 

To study political science, you should...

  • have an interest in politics and society, political systems, institutions, processes and structures.
  • want to enjoy a comprehensive methodological and theoretical education.
  • deal independently with literature and solution-oriented problems in political science.
  • want to participate in political science research projects themselves.

From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

Disclaimer
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.
