Two Countries– Two Degrees

Political Science is an international and diverse discipline - and so is our political science study program! In our double degree programs, you study one year at Bamberg, and year at one of our foreign partner universities. Upon successful completion of both parts, you receive two master's degrees from two universities in only two years!

Each of our programs allows you to experience different perspectives of political science and gain important international academic experience. Studying at two universities has thereby never been easier: As a member of a double degree program, you benefit from close cooperation and receive acces to a broad support network.

You can choose between varying specialisations for each institution, thereby offering you the possibility to combine multiple focus areas - or approach one focus area from different institutional perspectives.

Currently, we offer the following double master programs:
