How is the study program structured?

The Bologna Conference in 1999 initiated the introduction of Bachelor's and Master's degree programs at German universities; the Bachelor's degree program in Political Science has been represented at the University of Kassel since 2004.
On the one hand, the qualification goal of the BA Political Science is geared towards professional qualification; on the other hand, it forms the basis for further studies at the university. The course material includes a combination of subject-specific as well as methodological knowledge of the subject of political science. The obligatory internship and the implementation of projects promote the professional orientation of the students.
The BA Political Science offers more structuring and orientation than the model of the Magister and Diplom programs due to the clear course structure and the control of the performance standard. The number of long-term students and dropouts should thus be reduced. This course of study is especially aimed at first-year students who hope to receive orientation assistance during their studies. Additional mentors and tutors are available for this purpose.
