The bachelor program starts from a broad and multidisciplinary basis, gradually leaving room for more specialised study orientations.
In the master program students can choose between three attractive study fields: National Politics, International Politics or European Studies.
The courses are rooted in a strong research tradition, based on five research groups each embedded in their respective international scientific network: Centre for EU Studies, Centre for Local Politics, Ghent Institute for Political Studies, Ghent Institute for International Studies and the Institute for Comparative Research and Data Collection.
One of the fine traditions at the Ghent University Department of Political Science is the willingness and even eagerness of its staff to engage in public debate, thus making their expertise and knowledge available to a wide audience.
The Department library provides a vast array of scientific books and journals and Faculty services provide support for students and staff.
