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 among others address substantial questions as:

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

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