The world is facing major problems: an ecological crisis, the near collapse of our financial-economic system, rapid shifts in technology and issues of public safety. The master’s programme in Public Administration will provide you with the skills and conceptual tools to engage in descriptive, explanatory and normative research and analysis of the political and administrative issues of our time. The entire programme takes a comparative approach, looking at governance and policy-making practices in EU and non-EU countries.
You will be trained to apply problem-oriented research and analysis to the design of performance-oriented policies. Your results will be thoroughly attuned to the demands of effectiveness and feasibility, and will address the requirements of procedural norms such as constitutional legality and democratic legitimacy.
Are you interested in the world of academic research and following a PhD programme after graduation? Then our Twente Graduate programmes may be interesting for you.

GREat green CAMPUS
The wonderful, green campus of University of Twente, the only campus university site in the Netherlands, has everything you need within walking distance: housing accommodations, faculties, sports, and cultural facilities. Many student associations offer lots of activities. Importantly, finding an affordable housing accommodation is much easier in Twente than in other university cities. And, finally, the lively city center of Enschede is highly popular among students: you will always meet some friends in one of the many restaurants, café’s, or terraces around Market Square.
