The aim of learning is to transfer knowledge in the field of broadly understood social sciences, including in particular the legal and administrative sciences. Students in the field of administration acquire knowledge, social competences and, above all, skills enabling proactive, public-spirited attitudes; they obtain comprehensive preparation for performing various social roles, for performing various functions (including managerial functions) in the broadly understood administration, both in public (government and local-government) and economic administration, as well as in non-public institutions and entities. They also gain competences related to civic education and the ability to get across relevant content. Knowledge of administration is one of the essential elements of the competence of the modern official regardless of the place in which he or she will be employed. Studying in this field is aimed primarily at preparing modern administration specialists, professional future officials to perform tasks related to work in public-sector institutions. The abovementioned skills and attitudes are embedded in the theoretical and practical knowledge gained during the studies of issues related to the sphere of public administration, as well as knowledge of fundamental economic, social and legal institutions.
