The Master of Public Administration Program is part of the Department of PA at the Sofia University Faculty of Philosophy. This is one-year programme taught entirely in English.

Our MPA program is a professional interdisciplinary degree program that prepares pre and in-service employees for public sector, NGO, EU institutions, managers and policy analysts.

Challenges faced by public management in today’s globalized world presuppose universal theoretical knowledge and understanding of the regional and local specificities. This MPA program provides both theoretical disciplines and practical courses designed to respond to these particular ends.

Admission requirements:

  • Official diplomas and transcripts of higher education degree programs (at least BA level) from a recognized university.
  • Completed application form.

Selection of applicants is based only on submitted transcripts and official documents. Selection procedure is based on average results from the BA or MA degree. Applicants will be ranked based on the GPA of their Bachelor or MA degree.

The lectures in the full-time MPA program are held on a regular weekly basis predominantly during Saturdays and Sundays.
