Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Within the Master's Political Science , you have a choice between seven Master's specialisations. Moreover, our Political Science programme from Radboud University offers Dual Degree programmes with the American University in Washington, DC and with the University of Glasgow.

Pre-Master's

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).
