Overview

Within the Political Science programme taught at Radboud University , you have a choice between seven Master's specialisations. 

Pre-Master's programme

When your education background does not grant you direct admission to the Master's programme in Political Science , you can, in some cases, enrol in a pre-Master's programme.

A pre-Master’s programme is (usually) a one-year programme (60 EC’s) especially designed to bridge the gap between your prior education and our Master’s in Political Science. Finishing one of these programmes grants direct access to the Master’s programme.

Accreditation

The Master’s programme in Political Science is accredited by the NVAO (the Dutch-Flemish accreditation organisation).
