Public Administration

Making the state magnifique

What will you learn?

The “Administration Publique – Public Administration” study programme is prepared by Masaryk University and University of Rennes I in France. The teaching is done by Czech and French teachers; therefore, half of the training is done in Czech and half in French. The study programme educates highly qualified public administration workers. The character of teaching is markedly interdisciplinary and it makes use of the know-how of the renowned French IPAG Institute, which belongs to University of Rennes. The focus of the study programme, the subject structure, and the teaching methods comply with the standards used in France. Together with solid economic knowledge, the graduates obtain an education in administrative science and law, with the emphasis on the European dimension of the processes that take place in public administration. Study visits in Czech and French public institutions and specialized courses contribute to developing the necessary abilities for actual employment.

Practical training

Practical training is an obligatory part of the study plan. Students are required to pass two internships, one in Czech public administration, the second in French public administration. The first internship is to be passed during the second semestr and the required duration is one month. The internship in France is realized during the third semester and is 3 months long.

In case of the internship in Czech public administration, students can select a public authority from the list of institutions that is made available by the programme coordinater. The list consists of institutions that are used to accept interns. Otherwise they can select other public authorities based on their decisions.

French public authorities are selected based on CVs and motivation (Master thesis topic) of students by the French coordinator from IPAG.

Thanks to the two internship the programme is rather unique in the Czech context. The system of internships has been developing continuously also thanks to focused projects and broad cooperation of the department and faculty staff with Czech public authorities.
