Undergraduate Degree in Political and Administrative Sciences

Political and administrative sciences focus on the study of governments, nations, politics, states, and their socio-economic, political, and environmental policies. The discipline involves analysing the political situation of a country, learning what factors affect this situation, and being able to come up with effective solutions to any kind of ensuing problems. The discipline also aims to guide politicians in their decision-making, either in local or national governments, or in other contexts like international organisations and NGOs.

Students on our Degree in Political and Administrative Sciences are trained to detect all the factors which influence a specific political situation. The undergraduate course enables them to analyse these factors in depth, and offer solutions to any kind of related problems. Throughout the duration of the degree, they become experts in politics and governmental administration, gaining the necessary skills to understand the characteristics of any nation they wish to study.

The Faculty of Political Sciences and Sociology at the University of Granada was the first faculty in Andalusia to introduce a degree in political and administration sciences. Our teaching staff are highly qualified in teaching and researching political sciences, and we have many PhD students working in our Faculty. Students can also specialise in political sciences with many elective subjects that are not available in other universities.

This four-year Degree is comprised of three learning stages: basic, core and elective subjects. There is a possibility of doing an elective 6-credit internship programme. Contents in the subjects include areas of knowledge such as law, sociology, history, economics, the Spanish political system, socio-political data analysis, international relations, political theories, public policy evaluation and international and EU economics.

Those who complete our degree have employment prospects in a broad range of fields. For example, they can work both in the public and the private sector as political analysts, national and international advisers, organisation managers, researchers or teachers. Experts in political and administration sciences are highly sought-after in many countries. They are especially sought after in international organisations, NGOs and by foreign governments during negotiation processes.

Experts in this field learn how to detect and analyse the complex reality of any given political situation, how to change it, and improve it. They are vital for the correct functioning of our society.
