Four steps and you are studying in the M.A. Political Economy and International Relations:
If you are studying towards a Bachelor or an equivalent degree outside of Germany, please take notice that you must present your diploma upon application for our Master's Program.
Some of our courses are in English, but the majority of seminars and lectures are in German. Therefore, German skills are required at least at level B2, better at C1 (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). In order to prove your command of the German language, you have to pass the "Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang ausländischer Studienbewerber" (DSH) or an equivalent.
3. You have studied political science or social studies in the bachelor's degree at least as a minor and/or as a 2nd subject.
As part of your Bachelor's degree (or an equivalent degree program), you must have studied the subject of political science to the extent of at least 60 credit points or have completed coursework and module examinations with a focus on political science content to the extent of 60 LP (please note: the credit points you have earned as part of the final module or through an internship do not count towards this).
4. You have acquired knowledge in statistics and methods of empirical social research (somewhere) in your bachelor studies.
You must have earned at least six credit points in statistics and methods of empirical social sciences/empirical policy research as part of your bachelor's degree. It is irrelevant whether you have obtained these six credit points in political science or in a second Bachelor subject (such as sociology). If you have even acquired 14 LP or more in your B.A. studies, the Mainz Methods Certificate is of interest to you!
5. You apply on time and online.
