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!

The 21st century combines the promise of great progress with the resurgence of old dangers and the emergence of new ones. Those dangers include terrorism, warfare, weapons of mass destruction, and natural disasters. Some of these dangers are rooted in technology, others in society, and still others in nature itself. Attaining the strategic vision of the UAE will require deep understanding of those threats, and the knowledge and skills to address them. This unique Master’s Program is being offered by Khalifa University’s Institute of International and Civil Security. The Institutes’ mission is to become a leading academic center for supporting research, teaching and policy analysis in the field of security studies.

Since the turn of the millennium religious ideas and identities have increasingly shaped national and international politics, especially in the Middle East. This online MA program – led by Prof. Jonathan Fox, one of the world’s foremost experts in the field – provides a unique platform for understanding the role of religion in contemporary politics. We explore the potential of religions to unite and divide societies, to exacerbate conflict, or provide frameworks for peace. Whether you are planning a career in academia, policy research, diplomacy, conflict resolution, or the clergy, or whether you simply have a passion to understand the social forces that shape our world, this program is for you. This two-year, online MA program will provide you with a deep academic grounding in religious and Middle Eastern politics as well as in general political science. The program is taught entirely in English by leading experts. There are approximately six hours of online teaching each week, and the program is open to students anywhere in the world. We consider both religious politics and Middle Eastern politics important topics of study within political science. This program uniquely combines these topics, which include a broad survey of Middle Eastern politics as well as religious politics both in the Middle East and outside of the Middle East. At the same time, we provide courses that cover basic political science theory and methodology. Thus, while this course of study has a unique focus, it will also provide a broad foundation in the general discipline of political science. Bar-Ilan University’s Political Science Department is uniquely situated to provide this course of study. Its faculty is part of a 40+ year tradition of expertise and excellence in religious and Middle Eastern politics and includes world-class researchers and instructors on these topics. The department is also home to premier research centers and projects, which focus on these issues. These include the Religion and State Project, the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, the Middle East’s premier national security think tank, and the Argov Center for the Study of Israel and the Jewish People.
