Every complicated matter should have means to study it. Being one of the most twisted and intricate contemporary phenomena, politics requires a science to put the things straight and back in order. A Master in Political Science can teach the complicated philosophy and theory, as well as critical thinking and analytical skills required in this challenging and ever-changing field.

A Master in Political Science is interdisciplinary, intersecting with other subjects and studies, such as National Politics, Public Policy, Economics, Law, Psychology and Sociology. Usually, Political Science is subdivided into three disciplines that deal with different aspects of the vast matter of politics. The highly abstract but very important matters of legal code, justice, rights, and liberty are in the competence of Political Philosophy; whereas the study of International Relations is about bringing order and system into the process of interaction between nations and states, including peace and conflict studies. And last but not least, Comparative Politics is the third subfield of Political Science; it is based upon a practical approach towards the state and government as a systematic matter, for comparison is one of the oldest and most secure methods of research. Master in Political Science programs delve deep into these three subfields, and also allows students to concentrate on a specialized area of interest.

If the thrill of politics is for you, don’t hesitate to read the descriptions of different Master in Political Science programs. Choose the Master in Political Science program that suits you best and contact the school by sending the "Request free information” form!
