The M.A. Roads to Democracies is research-oriented, international and interdisciplinary. It is offered by the Departments of History, Political Science and Sociology. Further partner universities are involved in the context of student exchange. The program aims to provide students with analytical tools and theoretical knowledge that help to understand and explain the interrelation between institutional structures, political processes and the social and cultural foundations of democracy. The interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on political, economic, social, and cultural aspects of democratic ideas, institutions and structures both in and outside of Europe.

The Master’s programme qualifies successful graduates to pursue a further academic qualification within doctoral studies/PhD studies and provides a good basis for responsible positions in, e.g.: international organisations and NGOs, international aid and development agencies, research institutions and institutes of higher education of the public and private sector, culture agencies and cultural heritage institutions, publishing houses, journalism and media agencies concerned with international and intercultural communication, political parties, associations, foundations, international and internationally operating companies.
