FSPUB Student Annual Review
Since its establishment in 1991 in direct opposition with the communist party education, the Faculty of Political Science at the University of Bucharest (FSPUB) has promoted an open perspective on society through innovative curricula in English, French and Romanian, as well as through integration with the academic and professional communities, at both national and international level. Currently, the FSPUB is the most internationally-connected Romanian higher education institution in political and social research and it has the most varied offer for preparing a dynamic career with top employers.
THOUSANDS OF EXCITING CAREER OPPORTUNITIES WITH ONE DEGREE
Political science is an interdisciplinary field of studies that contributes fundamentally to understanding our society and its problems, as well as to building intellectually independent personalities, capable to foster and implement successful projects for individual and community development, while stimulating social changes in the spirit of freedom, creativity and democratic values. Whether they opt for more specific political career paths such as diplomacy, civic activism, political communication, political analysis, public administration in national or international governmental organizations, or political journalism, or they make less traditional choices such film directing, art or sport management, open their own business or travel the globe our graduates change the world in which they live.
The FSPUB offers degree programs taught and examined in foreign languages (English or French) at both undegraduate and graduate level, and can integrate within the doctoral program foreign students that do not speak Romanian. All professors speak at least one foreign language, more than half of them speak at least two foreign languages and about a third know at least three foreign languages, with English, French, Italian, German and Spanish as the most popular.
INTERNATIONAL INTEGRATION OF ALL STUDY AND RESEARCH PROGRAMSThe FSPUB offers BA, MA and PhD degrees fully integrated with the Bologna and the ECTS systems, which makes the curricula compatible with other top European and international programs and allows for double-degree/joint programs. Most FSPUB professors studied abroad or have lectured at top universities across the world, and cca.10% of all students benefit from international exchange mobilities in some of the best European universities. Each year the FSPUB hosts dozens of guest lectures of foreign scholars and professional experts, as well as the largest body of foreign students of social sciences in Romania.
INTERNSHIP WITH TOP EMPLOYERSThe FSPUB collaborates or is partner in projects with numerous higher education institutions, research institutues, think tanks, cultural centres, embassies, ministries, governmental agencies, representations of international organizations and non governmental organizations from Romania and abroad. All students are integrated in internship programs, which, at undegraduate level, last one year.
INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT FOR STUDENTSThe FSPUB offers scholarships and awards for excellent academic result, for study and for social support, as well as accommodation in the dormitories of the University of Bucharest.
