  • Special features regarding teaching
    On the one hand, within the teaching, there is a close relation to research, by which, for example, current research results are discussed. On the other hand, there is always the opportunity to apply acquired skills. This applies to the regularly offered Model United Nations simulation, for example. Courses with interesting guests, such as in the module Politics and Practice, as well as regularly offered excursions provide diverse suggestions as to which professional fields are possible in Political Science. Finally, student mentors provide support for students in the first semester in particular.
