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.
