Comparative Politics, Administration and Society

Radboud University

Master Postgraduate Nijmegen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study General programmes
Course summary This programme offers a unique combination of the theoretical foundations of Comparative Politics and the practical side of Public Administration. It focuses on the politics of public policymaking.
Course description Immigration, environmental degradation, population ageing and global poverty are just a few of the political challenges that contemporary policymakers face. In an increasingly globalised world, it is more important than ever that governments respond quickly and effectively to these challenges. National governments, however, increasingly share responsibility for designing and implementing effective policy with several layers of government (local, regional, national, international) and different types of actors (governments, non-profit organisations, businesses). This specialisation provides the skills needed for a career in government or other policymaking organisations (NGOs, international organisations, advocacy groups). Courses focus on the barriers to and facilitators of reform, Europeanisation, welfare state reform, and the problems governments face in the 21st century. You will learn to design effective policies in different political systems. Comparative Politics, Administration and Society is a Master's specialisation of our programme in Public Administration and in Political Science. The degree awarded is either a MSc in Public Administration or in Political Science.
Study subjects In this specialisation, you can opt for a Master's in Public Administration or a Master's in Political Science. The difference lies in one core course, an elective/internship, and the focus of your thesis. Public Administration students take 3 Public Administration courses and 2 Political Sciences courses. Political Science students take 3 Political Sciences courses and 2 Public Administration courses.
