In the complex world of contemporary politics it is necessary to understand not just theories of politics and communication, but also the fusion of those theories and their practical applications. This is especially true in democratic states, where leaders have to orchestrate “permanent campaigns” in order to maintain the sympathy of the public in a reality full of of global and local challenges. The one-year M.A. Political Science & Political Communication program explores these themes and more, offering students the opportunity to advance their knowledge and understanding of the practical dimensions of politics.

 

This excellent English-taught graduate program provides students with a deep and comprehensive knowledge of the dynamics and complexities of politics in the global age. Students come from all over the world and are encouraged to take up internships and other extra-curricular activities during an exciting year stay in Israel. The Political Science Department stands out in the study of political theories, political leadership, political communication, electoral systems and behavior and is the home of the Israel National Election Studies.

 

The program provides students with advanced knowledge, understanding, and tools of analysis in a world characterized by growing fusion between politics and communication. The program provides a broad, comparative, perspective of the challenges of leaders in the communicative age, and their relations with voters' expectations throughout their term and especially during election times.

 

Educational tours and meetings with political leaders, prominent journalists, and election specialists are incorporated into the curriculum.

 

The program grants an M.A. in Political Science from Tel Aviv University.
