By launching a new programme at the Doctoral College of Political and Administrative Sciences, we place particular emphasis on three of the recommendations we intend to implement:
- the main component of curriculum involves the doctoral students in carrying out their own research,
- the doctoral students are perceived as professionals who have a significant contribution to make in broadening knowledge,
- the curriculum of doctoral studies assumes the promotion of mobility—in the international dimension, between the university and other entities and within the university between various disciplines.
Assumptions of the Political and Administrative Sciences course at University of Wroclaw
- Education at the Doctoral College of Political and Administrative Sciences will be provided in Polish or English.
