We frequently get questions about upcoming post graduate courses on Interpretive Policy Analysis. Here you can find links to upcoming courses that are offered by various members of the IPA network.  Please contact us at contact@ipa.science if you would like to alert the network of any policy or political science teaching that is methodologically interpretivist in orientation such as courses, master classes, summerschools, winterschools, etc.

ECPR Summerschool and Winterschool

Every year the ECPR holds schools in methods and techniques. It runs twice a year, as a Summerschool and as a Winterschool. Courses deal with all stages of a project and cover positivist and interpretative perspectives.

You can take courses on a standalone basis or combine them over one or more events to provide a fuller, more comprehensive course of training. Main courses run for one-week at Winter School, and for one-week or two-weeks at Summer School. You can earn up to 4 ECTS Credits for a one-week Winter School course, and up to 8 Credits for a two-week Summer School course. Because of COVID-19 all courses are offered virtually.
