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).
