This English-taught programme combines European Studies and Public Administration to help you study the causes of - and solutions to complex problems on a local, national, European and global level.
Borders between countries are becoming increasingly blurred as societal problems extend beyond national boundaries. Knowledge of national and international governance is essential if you plan to have a career in public administration. With this in mind, our programme integrates local, national, European and international perspective. We will give you a solid foundation in economics, political science, sociology and law, while equipping you with an awareness of policy and public management. Building on this, you will go on to specialize in European Studies, Public Administration or both. This integrated approach puts you several steps ahead of other graduates in this field. In every module, you will apply your newfound knowledge in UTs unique project-led educational model. Working closely with people of different nationalities will dramatically improve your English. Once you have graduated, your knowledge of both national and international governance will enable you to tackle complex administrative issues from a sound academic basis. This makes you an ideal candidate for jobs in national and international government, public sector organizations and consultancy firms.
