How can we ensure that countries and companies tackle climate change? What influence do technological developments have on politics? As a political scientist, you want to change the world and help others to understand society better. You closely follow shifting power relationships in Europe and the rest of the world and are interested in their underlying causes, such as technological developments and climate change. 

During the Bachelor of Political Science programme, you will study how societies are organised politically and at what level decisions are made. You will delve into topics such as the power and powerlessness of the EU and the influence of new media. In our close-knit, yet international community, you have ample freedom to choose the scale on which you want to change the world. 


In the Global Politics programme, you are exposed to diverse viewpoints, experiences and cultures, giving you a broader field of vision. You learn to reflect on your own opinions, assumptions and the things you consider 'common sense'. As befits a future political scientist, you also pay attention to developing your debating and presentation skills. By working together with students and lecturers from programmes such as Sociology, Cultural Anthropology, and Governance & Organizational Sciences, you will become familiar with multiple perspectives.
