The Institute of Political Science

The Institute of Political Science at Goethe University Frankfurt is the largest of its kind in Germany. It is characterized by a combination of academic pluralism and excellence in research which is unique in Germany. Of particular importance are the institute’s cooperation with the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) (HSFK – Hessische Stiftung für Friedens- und Konfliktforschung) and its participation in the Research Centre “Normative Orders”. In teaching, the institute offers a varied and differentiated syllabus with a strong research focus in all sub-areas of the discipline. Joint Masters programmes in Political Theory and Peace and Conflict Research are run in cooperation with TU Darmstadt (Technical University of Darmstadt).
