Political Science Doctoral Program

The main research profiles of the Doctoral Programme in Political Science are political theory, comparative politics, general and regional issues of the European Union. Other major topics include electoral behaviour, governance, political communication, political institutions (e.g. constitutional courts, electoral systems, parliaments, parties, party systems, social movements), political leadership, political theory and philosophy, administrative models, and aspects of political science and the political economy of specific policies.  Further details are provided in the researchers’ thesis descriptions and in the activities of our doctoral students and doctoral candidates.  

The main objective of the doctoral programme is to train and launch researchers who are capable of pursuing political science and public service as scholars, and who are able to compete in national and international academic and academic careers. At the same time, it is open to those who wish to go beyond academic studies in these disciplines, in order to develop a more professionally sound career. The profile of the school has changed over the years, with the discontinuation of the public administration sub-programme and the introduction of the civil service. The school has changed its focus and now welcomes applicants with a background in social sciences and public service. Our doctoral students also form a professional community, working closely with their supervisors, and our school is developing an increasingly diverse network of contacts with the wider Hungarian political science community, including training institutions beyond the borders. Our international links are also constantly developing.
