Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and Public Administration


Degree in Political Science and Public Management

The bachelor's degree in Political Science and Public Administration, following its tradition and experience, offers studies that are both scientific and professional in orientation.

This degree offers an excellent well-rounded syllabus in which a solid training foundation is combined with optional subjects. This leads to the possibility of obtaining a general qualification in addition to choosing from three pathways, each leading to its corresponding specialisation within the degree: :

  • Political Analysis, focusing on acquiring knowledge, comprehension and skills needed for the rigorous analysis of political situations.
  • Analysis and Management of Public Policy, providing the analytical skills needed in a socio-political environment that is dynamic and multilingual, requiring multidisciplinary approaches to work and constant adaptation.
  • International Relations, promoting the democratic values that pertain to free citizens and respect for human rights, equality and the environment.

The Faculty of Political Science and Sociology, which pioneered studies in this field, places particular emphasis on internationalising academic activity (exchange programmes with thirty foreign universities, subjects taught in English, etc.) and work placements in many different institutions.

Our graduates go on to find employment in national and international institutions, public administration, NGOs, employers' associations, unions, consultancies and businesses. The faculty forms part of a broad network of research centres that generates a constant flow of ideas, knowledge and persons, thus assuring the presence of teaching staff of high academic standing and the best possible education for our students.
