The curriculum includes courses in administrative court proceedings, administrative law, interpretation of administrative law, and administrative supervision.  Graduates of 2nd cycle studies in Administration possess extensive knowledge in administrative science, administrative law, and administrative proceedings.

The aim of the studies is to equip graduates with knowledge and skills in team management, organisation, and leadership. This is ensured by the following courses: Human Resource Management, Employment Relationships in Administration and Organisational Sociology as well as Social Policy and Social Insurance.

Classes in tax law, trade law, competition law, and criminal fiscal law are designed to help graduates become highly valued employees of government offices and financial institutions, and provide them with the necessary skills to start their own businesses.

The programme also includes classes on the functioning of institutions in Poland and the European Union (The State’s Political System, European Law, Comparative Constitutional Law of EU Member States), workshops on preparing projects for the European Union and lectures on legal conditions of the functioning of structural funds. As a result, graduates are able to freely operate within the European legal space. They are trained to manage projects and make the right decisions when applying for EU funds and cooperating with foreign entities.

The programme also features courses on human rights, constitutional law of European countries, political and administrative doctrines.  Moreover, in the course of studies, students may choose subjects dedicated to specialised issues in broadly understood administration.
