About

The Political Science - Political Theory programme taught at the Radboud University trains students to chart where power hides in justification practices, both in political theory and political practise. We are the conscience of real-world politics and policies and prepare you to interpret and contribute to real-world politics.

Overview

Why study the  Political Science - Political Theory programme taught at the Radboud University  

  • Our students rate this Master’s programme 8,6 out of 10. This Master's programme was recently awarded the quality label ‘Top Programme' and rated best in their field. This study programme is rated top programme for three consecutive years according to the students 
  • The programme has a unique focus on power, justification and legitimisation, globalisation, and critical understanding of theories of the good society. We do not limit ourselves to the dominant redistributive justice discourse, but address global, ecological, and intergenerational justice, multiculturalism and agonism.
  • The Master’s programme in Political Science is accredited by the NVAO (the Dutch-Flemish accreditation organisation). The panel, consisting of international experts, concludes that the programme is rightly proud of its community spirit, which continues to benefit the programme’s achievement level and its graduates’ careers alike

Careers

Graduates of political theory are academics, not politicians. We believe that to be a good policy advisor, manager or administrator, you need to have good research skills. Research is what is going to make your advice be both valid and practical: both sides of the coin of policies are equally important to the political theorists.
