Program Description:

The Master's programme at Radboud University has been ranked as the Netherlands' best Master's programme in Political Science by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Association and by students in Elsevier's Higher Education Supplement. The key to this success is our emphasis on small, interactive classes, our challenging programme, the expertise and effectiveness of our internationally oriented staff, and our location in a lively, student-friendly, cosmopolitan city.

The programme analyses political behaviour, ideas, events and institutions with an emphasis on power relations that shape the design and effectiveness of political institutions, structure patterns of cooperation and govern conflict in global politics.
