The Joint Bachelor degree (B.A. in Political Science and a second subject) is a cross-disciplinary degree programme. Graduates are eligible for a M.A. programme in both subjects at Technische Universität Darmstadt. Currently, Political Science can be combined with the following subjects: Digital Philology, German Philology, History, Musical Culture, Philosophy, Sociology, Economy, Physical Education and Computer Science.
Combination of two subjects ensures a broad and diverse basic education, where specialisation in one discipline is achieved in the respective M.A. programme. Furthermore, the joint B.A. programme provides great flexibility by giving students time to follow more than one interested subject, while still preparing them to be able to specialise in one area if they choose to pursue master studies.
The Political Science part of the programme provides for comprehensive knowledge about political institutions, processes and forms of governance which are linked to different levels within and beyond the national state. Students gain solid education in the different sub-disciplines. Students also develop their theoretical and analytical skills, as well as competence for empirical research in connection with social science theories.
Graduates acquire a diploma which makes them eligible for a M.A. programme in Political Science or related subject. Successful accomplishment of the programme provides access to diverse employment in politics, the media, administration, economy, international organisations, associations as well as education and research institutions.
More detailed information about the combination of subjects and the degree programme can be found at the website of the Department 02.
Key documents for the study programme can be found in the Satzungsbeilage.
