We face new and old problems in society today. As political scientists, we consider the value of different ways of meeting these challenges. The Political Science of Heidelberg University is an interdisciplinary program where you are encouraged to use the knowledge and skills of history, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, sociology and mathematics to explore public life in local communities, nation-states and world forums. We emphasize a “hands-on” approach to learning: internships, visits with public officials, simulated legislative sessions and guided research.
Political scientists describe and analyze governing processes in local communities, nation states and world forums. Students of politics and government use historical investigation, statistical reasoning, philosophical inquiry and behavioral studies to better understand the forces that shape the political life of human communities. Through the study of political science, students considering employment in law, public service, international service, public administration, business and industry, teaching and journalism discover ideas and insights that both enrich their personal lives and strengthen their competencies for their chosen careers.
