Research Master Political Science and Public Administration

Welcome to the Research Master’s page of the Institute of Public Administration. The two-year Research Master Programme in Political Science and Public Administration aims to provide students with a thorough grounding in political science and public administration and a rigorous training in the methodological skills that are necessary to conduct research in these fields. In the interdisciplinary research master’s you can choose between a specialisation in political science or public administration, while also following courses in a combined curriculum.

Specialization in Public Administration

"The Public Administration track trains ambitious students to critically analyse and tackle real-life problems in the public sector and public sector organisations. It equips you with cutting edge theory and advanced methodological skills to conduct independent public policy and management research."
