University of Barcelona

Political and Administrative Sciences

Recommended applicant profile

Students of political and administration sciences should be interested in and concerned about social and political problems and how to solve them. They should have a capacity for public service, and a desire to be of use to society. They must understand that good political order is the basis for improving in many aspects of sectors of our societies. However, the degree in Political and Administration Sciences is designed to train not politicians (not that the option is ruled out) but people who are associated professionally with taking public decisions in many fields (administration, political parties, consultancies, reports, etc.).
