Department of Public Administration

The Department of Public Administration (Department 3) has specialised in the competences required in administration and law. To effectively reflect this particular focus, the Department is divided into the Berlin Public Administration School and the Berlin Law School. Here, students are given the knowledge required to understand the administrative and legal context, shape administrative processes,
and appreciate and evaluate legal issues. The academic staff supports students in the development of their communicative and social competences. Moreover, all Bachelor and Master programmes integrate gender issues and the dimension of a European and international perspective.


The expertise needed for a future career in public administration, non-profit organisations and the private service sector is provided in courses with a modular structure using modern materials and methods (including blended learning).
