Graduate Program

Master’s Degree Program in Public Administration and Political Science

The main objective of the program is to produce graduates well-educated in political science and public administration, with the ability to conduct research in the fields of political science and public administration. To achieve this, the courses providing in-depth knowledge of political science and public administration examine political, administrative, cultural, legal, economic, and ethical dimensions of the studied fields at local, national and international levels, while completion of a Master’s degree thesis develops the ability of conducting academic research.

The program consists of four compulsory, three elective and a non-credit seminar course. The seminar course is intended to prepare students for writing a thesis in their chosen topic in applied economics.

There is also a non-thesis option for students who opt not to write a thesis. In this case, students are required to successfully complete at least three more elective courses (for a total of 10 courses) and a non-credit Term Project course. 

The Master’s Degree is awarded to students who have successfully completed all courses in the curriculum, obtained a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00 on a 4.00 scale, and completed and defended a Master’s Degree thesis.
