Shaping Positions, Controlling Influence

 

Politics and Communication have long been linked in two main spheres: elections and public criticism. These two domains are vital and inseparable in democratic societies and they play a massive role in undemocratic regimes as well. A background in both political science and communication can be a great starting point for people who consider careers in journalism, campaign management, political consulting and more.

 

Study Program

 

Tel Aviv University's international M.A. in Political Science and Political Communication program intertwines theoretical background in both fields with research and practical experience. The department is home to Israel national election studies, which means students may intern in researches conducted by the center regarding Israeli public opinion, past and present electoral campaigns etc. students may also intern in governmental and municipal offices and campaigns. A list of intern options is updated and published every year.

The 10 months (3 semesters) M.A. program is entirely in English. Studies take place twice a week. In case students wish to complete a thesis, they must take at least one additional semester. Proposal of the research must be submitted before the end of the third semester.
