The Master’s degree programme in Development and Governance
The programme combines teaching in several political science sub-disciplines with a practice-oriented methodology including an internship with a German (development) organisation. The main emphasis is on acquiring knowledge of the relevance of different tiers and forms of governance-processes (local, national, international) both within the established democracies and the developing societies, and on training students’ analytical skills. The programme is thus providing students with both policy- and region-specific expertise.
