Program description

In this interdisciplinary master's students will be able to choose between a specialisation in political science or public administration, while also following courses in a combined curriculum.

This programme is designed to prepare students to conduct independent research on core themes of public administration. This is not an applied curriculum like that found in many Master's programmes in Public Administration. Rather, the Leiden programme emphasises both strong training in the core academic issues confronting public administration and, especially, extensive work in research methods. Graduates of the programme should be more than informed consumers of research, critically evaluating the work of others. Rather, we expect our graduates to engage in international academic and applied debates over issues of core concern to public administration by independently formulating, performing, and assessing scientific research at a level that is sufficient for publication in scholarly journals.
