Special features regarding teachingThe teaching offered at the Institute is characterised by a close link between research and teaching. Beyond the basics of the subject, students have the opportunity for thematic in-depth study in subject areas on which the lecturers themselves conduct research. As a result, the courses offered are close to research and up to date.

Special features regarding research activitiesPolitical science in Greifswald is very strong in research; projects on various topics are constantly taking place at all chairs. Students are involved here as student assistants, in seminars or internships, which enables them to participate in research practice at an early stage. In addition, the research results and methods are dealt with intensively in courses, so that an integration of teaching and research takes place. Due to the small size of the institute, the synergy between research and teaching is particularly guaranteed.
Support for foundersIn accordance with the university's personnel development concept, support is provided for the acquisition of research funds and for spin-offs.
