About Political Science: Global Environmental Governance at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Are you interested in international and European politics, environmental governance and policy making? Welcome to the Master's programme in Political Science! You will become acquainted with current academic research in the field of political science, while exploring a specialization of your choice and learning about the most important research traditions, theories and approaches. The programme has been developed and is taught by an internationally renowned team with an extensive international

network. Approximately 25% of our students come from abroad.


The programme has a unique cumulative structure, in which you continue to specialize month by month. You start the first semester with two basic courses in the major sub-disciplines of the field: International Relations and Comparative Politics (or Public Administration for the Policy and Politics specialization). In smaller groups, you then focus on contemporary issues and approaches within your specialization as well as a selected issues course from one of the other specializations. In the final phase

of the programme, you concentrate exclusively on your own specialization with a workshop and your individual Master's thesis. This Master's therefore provides you with a solid foundation in all aspects of Political Science, as well as a clear specialization. Throughout the programme, you benefit from highly interactive tutorials, workshops and intensive individual supervision.


The development of human civilization and industrial growth has left almost no species, country or part of the ocean untouched. Politicians and policy makers have to cooperate with multinationals, organizations and scientists to confront international environmental problems. In this specialization you

will engage with the political aspects and implications of topics such as climate change, sustainability and nature. You will familiarize yourself with current research and learn about the most important research traditions and approaches related to international environmental politics.
