At the center of the Master of Arts courseGovernance and public policy is the term “governing”. In addition to the general deepening of theoretical and empirical political science issues, the course provides extensive knowledge, in particular about governance in multi-level systems. Other important aspects in this context include the diversification of decision-making processes at national and transnational level, changes in political institutions, new forms of political control and new types of negotiation systems.
The focus is on research-oriented studies. Participation in a research colloquium is intended to lay the foundations for later employment in a social science professional field
In principle, the possible fields of activity for social scientists and thus also for graduates of political science or the Master of Arts Governance and Public Policy are widely diversified. This broad spectrum results not least from the practical experience that the students were able to gather during their studies or to which content-related focal points they primarily devoted themselves to.
Generally speaking, they can work, for example, in school or specialist book editorial offices, in publishing houses (e.g. in proofreading), in radio, television and newspaper editorial offices, in PR and advertising agencies, in libraries and archives, in international organizations and in the cultural sector . With additional business management qualifications, they can also work in commercial enterprises (e.g. in sales and marketing or in human resources). Activities in press and public relations are further professional options that are not infrequently sought by social scientists.
For political scientists, it is also obvious to work in research and teaching at universities. You can also work for statistical, market and opinion research institutes as well as for political parties, associations, international organizations or in public administration.
