Politics (B.A.)

Bachelor’s degree program

For you, politics is more than just what happens in the news. You don’t just want to understand the society you live in, you also want to change it. Because for you, politics is not something that politicians create, but something that happens from below. You want to develop ideas, convince people and turn projects into reality.

In this degree program, you will learn to understand all facets of political science (political philosophy, international relations and comparative political systems) in a way that enables you to develop critical thinking to drive change. You can specialize in civil society activism, political communication or sustainable development. During a semester abroad, you can deepen your skills at one of our partner universities.
