MDP in Democracy and Global Transformations

"Democracy and Global Transformations" is a two-year research oriented programme (120 ECTS) designed to equip the graduate students with a profound understanding of theory and practice of democracy in global, national and local contexts. Upon successful completion of the programme, students receive a Master of Social Sciences degree (M.Soc.Sc.).

The programme has a common core, but students apply and are accepted either for the Politics or World Politics sub-programme. Both deal with global, national and local challenges for democracy, but from different theoretical perspectives. The Politics sub-programme focuses more on transformations of national political systems, while the World Politics sub-programme studies the different contexts from global perspectives.
