Our programmes link theory with practice as one of the most important conditions of acquiring skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary for a successful carrier in public administration. During three years of studies, students of the Public Administration Department will gain knowledge in public management, law, economics, quantitative methods, research skills, effective communication, and gain values in managing within a diverse public environment. Graduates will be able to contribute to the creation, implementation, and evaluation of public policies for the good of society.
