The College of Law and Political Science works on preparing students to be professional leaders who would excel in the job market at national, regional and international levels. To fulfil such mission, the College is committed to shape highly-educated:

  • jurists (judges, lawyers, public notaries, diplomats, legal advisers...) who distinguish themselves by their analytic skills and their ethical standing. As committed citizens, law graduates are expected to contribute to the advancement of the rule of law and common good in society. They are also expected to defend human rights, espouse and promote human, spiritual and national values, and to work for the establishment of the welfare state.
  • political science graduates (diplomats, civil servants, employees/consultants in mass media enterprises, NGO’s, international and regional organizations, educational institutions and private enterprises….) who acquire the analytic, intellectual and practical skills to look at critical issues in the political world that may affect their life and the one of the community. In their learning journey, the students build their understanding of political concepts, institutions and processes as well as causes and factors that influence the decision making process in the political arena at national, regional and international levels.
