Never before have political decisions been so interconnected across the world. A global pandemic, climate change, shifts in economic power, the rise of AI and big data. They all impact global politics. But how? And who are the main actors?
The Political Science Master’s programme at VU Amsterdam teaches you to analyse the exercise of political power in its social and international context. It enables you to formulate solutions to social and political problems by providing you with different theoretical perspectives and rigorous research skills.
In the first period, you study core debates and issues in political science. You then select one of three specialisations:
- Democracy, Power and Inequality
- Global Environmental Governance, Sustainability and Climate Change
- International Relations, Security and Global Order
