Undergraduate Professional Study Programme in Administration Studies

Undergraduate Professional Study Programme in Administration Studies are carried out with the aim of meeting the needs of the labour market for personnel in state administration, regional and local self-government, judicial authorities, public services, and businesses in the Republic of Croatia. In line with global trends and principles regarding the special status and required knowledge, skills, and competences of civil and public servants in general, it is necessary to provide continuous professional education to employees in public administration. A special reason is reflected in the intent of certain ministries and government offices of the Government of the Republic of Croatia to employ professional bachelors of administrative law at jobs at which persons with secondary school diploma are currently employed, all with the aim of increasing quality and improving the efficiency of state and public administration. Undergraduate Professional Study Programme in Administration Studies have been carried out every years since the academic year 2005/2006. 

The curriculum of this programme meets general and specific needs for knowledge, skills, and competences of employees in state administration, local and regional self-government, and legal persons with public  authorities or those who perform public service; the programme prepares them to do a variety of tasks which require attention in the given work environment. Upon completion of the programme, students are  awarded  the professional title of Professional Bachelor of Public Administration (Bacc. admin. publ.).  The enrolment quota for this programme is 48 full-time students from the European Union, two full-time non-EU students, and 50 part-time students per year.

This  programme was often interesting as a form of “lifelong learning” to persons who have sought their first employment after graduating from secondary school and who have then recognised the need for further education. A number of employees in public administration enrolled into the programme with the aim of advancing at their work and taking on more complex jobs. Students who complete this Study can continue their education at the Specialist Graduate Professional Study Programme carried out at the Faculty.
