Welcome to the Institute of Political Science!

Political science has a long-standing tradition at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Back in 1951, one of the first professorships of political science in Germany was established here. Today, the Institute - including 8 research groups and more than 30 scientists - is among the largest of its kind at a German Technical University. Numerous contacts to European and international partner universities allow our students to gain intercultural experience and to study with an international focus.

The institute offers several attractive study programs and provides for an intensive exchange between lecturers and students. In our seminars and lectures we teach the basics of political science, include students in our research and promote practical and analytical skills. As a result, our students also gain insights in current research questions and in contemporary challenges to modern governing.


Our study program builds on internationally recognized research with a particular focus on multilevel governance. We investigate new forms of governance in domestic, European and international contexts from empirical as well as normative perspectives while addressing the questions of how effective and democratic politics can succeed under the conditions of complexity.
