Head of International Graduate Program in Political Science and Political Communication, Tel Aviv University
In the complex world of contemporary politics it is necessary to understand not just theories of politics and communication, but also the fusion of those theories and their practical applications. This is especially true in democratic states, where leaders have to orchestrate “permanent campaigns” in order to maintain the sympathy of the public in a reality full of of global and local challenges. The one-year M.A. Political Science & Political Communication program explores these themes and more, offering students the opportunity to advance their knowledge and understanding of the practical dimensions of politics.
