Insights into Political Science (Trailer)

Take a look behind the scenes of our department and get first-hand information about political science studies. Students and former students tell about their activities, focus and future perspectives. Researchers present their field, go to key moments of their careers and give tips. Our managing director shows what the management of a political science department is, and what it takes for it. Unfortunately, the interviews are kept in German.

The individual video interviews can be found in our page "insights into political science" (German only).
