Master´s Program


Political Communication

The Master’s Program in Political Communication is a postgraduate program offered by the Department of Social and Political Sciences of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. This program was created from the Master’s Program in Political Communication and Campaign Management (2007-2014), and recognizes the growing importance of political communication as a key element in democratic politics nowadays.

The program provides graduates with the skills and expertise needed for in-depth design and implementation of political communication strategies, communication research, and analysis of public opinion and voting behavior as required by political and government communication activities. The program is aimed at professionals wishing to create, shape and manage information strategically in political processes, both in political parties and in social and governmental organizations.



Public Administration

The two-year Master’s in Public Administration (MPA) is a professional program that builds on a tradition that acknowledges the significance of civil servants as agents of transformation in the public administration. Our program equips students who have prior work experience with the skills and perspectives they need to be effective team-leaders in solving public problems.

Our students continue their careers in the public sector, NGOs, multilateral institutions or even in the private sector in positions that have public impact. Our graduates stand out thanks to their solid training in administration, budget formulation and execution, strategic management, economics and risk management.


Public Politics

The Master’s in Public Policy is part of a long tradition of international programs in Public Policy (MPP) and Public Administration (MPA). The variety of professionals that come from these programs work within governments and public administration, the business sector, and social organizations. Our MPP offers solid training and skills in micro and macroeconomics, strategic management, methods and statistics, and project formulation and evaluation. Students interested in more specific in-depth knowledge can also follow a specialization path such as Methodology for Public Policy Analysis, Social and Educational Policy, Planning and Urban Planning, and State, Market and Tertiary Sector.

The MPP program is aimed at professionals working in the public administration, social organizations, and international institutions. Furthermore, our program is particularly suitable for those at the beginning of their careers, either willing to improve their chances of making successful job market applications or intending to follow further doctoral studies in public policy, sociology, economics or political science.
