Munich School of Political Science

The Munich School of Political Science (German: Hochschule für Politik) is an independent institution within the University of Munich. It is solely dedicated to political science as course of studies and located in the borough Maxvorstadt, Munich, Germany. Most of the faculty consists of professors from other universities in Munich, i.e. University of Munich and Bundeswehr University of Munich, who additionally teach at the Munich School of Political Science.

History

The Munich School of Political Science was founded on 14 July 1950. Based on a law of 27 October 1970 it is an independent institution affiliated with the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich. This makes the Munich School of Political Science the only University in Bavaria based on an own specific state law. All other non-private Universities in Bavaria are subject to the Bavarian State Law on Higher Education (Bayerisches Hochschulgesetz). Though the HfP is an independent institution its degrees are conferred by the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich. Since 16 February 1981 the HfP has the status of a statutory corporation under public law. Unlike most other German universities the Munich School of Political Science has kept the traditional German Diplom and has not switched to the Bachelor and Master system according to the Bologna Process. On 01 January 2007 HfP was granted the right to confer doctorates and can thus confer the degree of “Doctor Scientarium Politicarum” (Dr.sc.pol.) .
