The Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy and International Relations covers several academic sub-fields, but runs one single PhD program, the Doctoral Program in Political Science. The structure of the Doctoral Program in Political Science is based on a system of ‘tracks’ (areas of specialization, or ‘majors’). The tracks represent academic fields / sub-fields or research areas that reflect the major strengths and interests of our faculty.


After being admitted to the Doctoral Program, every student becomes the member of one certain track of his or her choice. Each track has its specific course requirement and research topics that distinguishes it from the others.
