Welcome to the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen

The Department of Political Science is situated right in the heart of Copenhagen only a few steps from the city center. The old buildings of what used to be a hospital set the frame of a vibrant student life characterised by an independent way of studying where each student is challenged to be creative and reflexsive. 

Each semester the Department of Political Science welcomes a broad range of international students from all over the world. The Department is known for its high quality research within the major subject fields of comparative politics, international politics and public administration with some additional sub fields. A broad range of courses within these fields are offered in both Danish and English.
