You will have the choice of specializing in any of these three majors or career paths: Political Analysis and Consultancy, Public Analysis and Administration, or International Relations.

This degree has obtained the Dual University Training Quality Seal awarded by Unibasq - Agency for Quality of the Basque University System, so you will have the option of taking the dual track.
