Political Science at Tübingen University
Tübingen, as one of the oldest universities in Germany, founded in 1477, stands for quality and innovation in research and teaching. The university is one of Germany’s most respected and provides an excellent environment for academic studies. With its problem-oriented and theory-driven approach to studying democracy, state-society relations and development, the master’s program builds on the University of Tübingen’s long-standing research expertise in the MENA region. Most modules will be taught by the Institute of Political Science, one of Germany’s top-ranked Political Science institutions, which excels in comparative political science research on non-OECD, especially MENA countries (for more information on the department please see www.middle-east-tuebingen.org). Language teaching and modules on the culture and civil society of the Middle East will be offered by the Department of Oriental and Islamic Studies.
