The IPW is one of the leading political science institutes in Switzerland. The excellent basic research and practice-relevant contract research flow into the education at Bachelor and Master level. Teaching focuses on the structures, processes and content of Swiss politics, comparative political science, European and environmental politics, and attitudinal and behavioral research in the context of political sociology.
The courses are almost exclusively in German. A good knowledge of the German language is therefore a prerequisite for successful studies.
