  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Department of Political Science is characterised by thematic priorities in teaching with regard to EU and European Multilevel Governance, IB and Peace and Conflict Studies as well as Environmental Policy and Sustainable Development. In addition, there is a well-founded training in methods as well as numerous practical contacts at home and abroad. All professorships have been filled since 2016/17, so there is currently a lot of momentum in teaching here. There is a very close teacher/student relationship in teaching, and the supervision situation is good.

The faculty is active in national and international scientific associations, including ECPR, DVPW, ISA, IPPA, EGPA, IPSA, RSA, IUFRO and others. Since 2018 the editorial office of the "Zeitschrift für Friedens- und Konfliktforschung" is located at the FB.
