Latin to English translations [Non-PRO]
Latin term or phrase: cand. rer. pol.
It is an abbreviation of a title.
In a German certificate it says: " Herr cand. rer. pol. XXXX hat an meiner Klausur ... teilgenommen.

It would also help me if someone could tell me the long version of the Latin expression.

A similar problem: "stud. rer. pol."

Thanks for any suggestions
