The Master of Arts in Political Science degree is designed as a cycle of training and specialisation through research. It allows the student to develop, deepen and complete the knowledge acquired during the Bachelor's degree course.
The programme offers three optional specific orientations covering the main sub-disciplines of political science:
* Public Policies
* International Relations
* Political Sociology
The aim is to allow the student to define his/her own degree course to reflect his/her own interests and professional objectives.
The training benefits from the resources of the Institute of Political and International Studies (IEPI) and its various research groups. IEPI is currently, for the number of its teachers/researchers, one of Switzerland´s foremost centres of research and teaching in Political Science. It is characterised by its open-minded interdisciplinary approach based on collaboration within the UNIL (sociology, history, gender studies, etc.), as well as with other institutions in Switzerland (IDHEAP, UNIFR) and abroad.
