Our claim: To find answers to global challenges

PAIR is a study pro­gram in po­lit­i­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive sci­ence mainly taught in Ger­man. It ad­dresses stu­dents who want to an­a­lyze po­lit­i­cal sys­tems in mod­ern so­ci­eties from a na­tional, in­ter­na­tional, and Eu­ro­pean per­spec­tive. At the same time - and from the per­spec­tive of or­ga­ni­za­tional re­search and mod­ern man­age­ment the­ory - na­tional and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions are an­a­lyzed, and a wide knowl­edge of pub­lic man­age­ment in mod­ern states is taught. Thus, the stu­dents learn to an­a­lyze and solve com­plex prob­lems of de­ci­sion-mak­ing and gov­er­nance in the pub­lic sec­tor in their po­lit­i­cal, legal, eco­nomic, and so­cial con­text.

As all other study pro­grams at ZU, PAIR has a strong in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary ori­en­ta­tion which can not only be seen in the so-called Zep­pelin Year, the first two se­mes­ters, but also in the elec­tive mod­ules from re­lated study pro­grams in later se­mes­ters. At the same time the study pro­gram pro­vides the chance of a sub­ject-spe­cific spe­cial­iza­tion that en­sures the best pos­si­ble com­pat­i­bil­ity for mas­ter pro­grams in po­lit­i­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive sci­ence.

Im­por­tant Note: All bach­e­lor pro­grams at Zep­pelin Uni­ver­sity re­quire sound knowl­edge of Ger­man. Al­though 40 per­cent of our courses are taught in Eng­lish, your Ger­man knowl­edge should be at least on the C1 level of the CEFR in order to start a suc­cess­ful study pro­gram at ZU. There­fore, we re­gret that we can­not ac­cept ap­pli­ca­tions writ­ten in Eng­lish.
