With two grant holders of the European Research Council, a steady stream of international publications, and a firm commitment towards research innovation, the Department of Political Science plays a leading role in research both nationally and internationally. 

Our Ba.Sc of Political Science provides students with the strong basis of both political knowledge and social science research.Our Master of Political Science is the only Master in Political Science in Belgium that is taught in English. We focus on understanding the theory and practice of political decision making. Our master programs in Political Communication and International Relations and Diplomacy provide the opportunity of inter-disciplinary specialization.  

Locally anchored and internationally oriented, the department attaches great importance to outreach to the wider community through media outlets, debates and lectures, and policy oriented research.
