The wellbeing of citizens is achieved only as a result of a collective effort, when each person does a great job at his or her work place. However, this collective effort needs a direction, some guidelines that people could follow. These guidelines are provided through public administration by competent and professional public servants. It is impossible to underestimate public administration as a field of study as the competences, knowledge, skills, abilities and personal qualities that students develop or acquire during the course find a reflection in their actions as public employees and naturally influence society at a local and global level. Public administration as a course provides students with indispensable theoretical knowledge in law, management, history, economics and administrative systems as well as gives them a chance to study, analyse and solve real practical cases related to a specific branch of public administration. As a rule the course is accompanied by internship, which acquaints students with the reality of their future job and gives them hands-on practical experience. Some programmes offer foreign internship and foreign language courses with emphases on job terminology. Public administration naturally attracts responsible, ambitious and social-minded people who strive to defend social justice and improve the living standards globally.
