Description The School of Political Studies located in the Faculty of Social Science offers graduate program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Public Administration. The main objective of the doctoral program in public administration is to provide students with leading-edge theoretical and conceptual knowledge to enable them to understand and analyze public administration, as well as equipping them with the know-how and skills necessary for success in a constantly changing organizational environment. The program aims to prepare students for academic and research careers. The various components of the doctoral program (courses, comprehensive examination, thesis proposal, thesis and defence) are all designed to develop the student’s capacity for high-level independent research in social sciences. The program offers two fields or concentrations in public administration: public management and public policy. These fields are not mutually exclusive, but constitute the two main components of public administration studies.
