Dual Degree in Political Science

This is your opportunity to study political science in-depth at two universities, one in Switzerland and the other in Canada! The Department of Political Science at the University of Lucerne together with the the Department of Political Science at Carleton University in Ottawa are offering a Dual Master’s Degree programme in Political Science.

Students study in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada, and at the shores of Lake Lucerne in the heart of Switzerland. They have access to the broad spectrum of political science courses taught at each of the two departments and receive a Swiss as well as a Canadian certificate upon graduation. At both universities, all courses are taught in English and comprehensively cover the field of political science.  Graduates of this programme will be well-equipped to pursue an inter- or multinational career both in the academic and non-academic world.
