Politics and Society

095 maastricht health campus 550x280 um

Politics and Society is a master program in English at Maastricht University.

This is not a programme where you’ll be stuck in Politics 101, answering questions like ‘So what is national identity?’ Instead, you’ll be expected to engage intelligently with some of the biggest sociopolitical issues of our time: What is the meaning of citizenship in modern culture? The role of political intellectuals? The value of democracy? The future of liberty itself? Given the present international backdrop of cultural conflicts, political strife and radical new technologies, a thorough understanding of such issues is more urgently needed than ever.
