The Department of Political Science is the 25th best Department in the world with regards to politics and international relations
The Department is the 25th best Department in the world, according to the QS-rakings in Politics and International Relations. The ranking is based on four sources: academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations and the h-index.
The ranking confirms the findings of a recent research evaluation. The Department of Political Science has graduated from the national to the international stage in terms of achievements and aspirations. The good ranking thus cements the Department’s ability to produce research of high international quality while at the same time minimizing distance between the research community and political decision-makers.
