Our department encompasses all of the classical subfields of Political Science – ranging from Political System Analysis (with a focus on the German political system) to International Organizations and Relations. Teaching and research address substantial questions as:

  • in what kind of institutional framework is politics is taking place, both within states and between states?
  • who are the main actors in the political realm?
  • which objectives are pursued by politics and what kind of ideas shape that process?

Further information, regarding the department’s profile, research and teaching, but also the student representatives can be found on our website.

Yours, Prof. Dr. Torsten Oppelland (Department Director)
