A theoretical Masters study 

While a regular political science Masters usually includes contemporary policy and politics analyses, the Master of Political Theory focuses even more on political theories throughout the centuries. Mostly, you concentrate on the emergence of democracy as a political system and how it has developed ever since the early polis in Athens. The French and American Revolution, the nation-state building processes of the 19th century as well as the conflict between democratic and communist systems in the late 20th century constitute relevant thematic blocs within the course of your study. Naturally, contemporary topics such as the Arab spring or the concept of failed states will cross your paths. Thus, while your study focus clearly lies on political theories, you do not subscribe for a mere historical type of study.

To be eligible for the one- to two-year Masters programme, you need to have accomplished a Bachelors degree (or equivalent) in political or another field of study in the social sciences. Be aware that the admission criteria may differ at universities and colleges as does the academic title awarded with successful completion. Some Masters programmes in Political Theory end with a Master of Arts or Science.

Career prospects with a Master of Political Theory

As the Master of Political Theory teaches you a sound understanding of political theory focusing on democracy, your career prospects are manifold. You understand the very basis of our international state system as leading industrial nations. Hence, you may pursue a career in political professions, such as party organizations, government or non-government organizations or political institutions. But you also qualify for a job in journalism, media and public relations. Naturally, a career in research, teaching and development is also open to you.
