Programme committee

The Programme Committee is an advising committee constituted with an equal number of students and staff, chaired by a lecturer. The committee advises the programme director about all educational affairs. The relevance is in the practical experience that is brought into consideration. The programme director takes advises seriously and will always clarify her decision making. An important issue is the quality assurance of the programme and the modules/courses in many ways.

We have combined programme committee meetings for the following studies:

  • Bachelor Management, Society & Technology
  • Joint degree Bachelor Public Governance across Borders
  • Master European Studies
  • Master Public Administration

Our first newsletter came out!  

newsletter 1

On behalf of the Programme Committee and of the programme management for European Public Administration, Public Governance across Borders, and European Studies programmes, we  would like to invite you to read our joint newsletter. The newsletter aims at all bachelor students in European Public Administration, Public Governance across Borders, and all master students in Public Administration and European Studies. 
With the newsletter we would like to provide information about all the work that often remains “behind the scenes” for many of you: the management of the different programmes, the work of the Programme Committee, the improvements we develop for our education programmes, and also special events and celebrations we would like to share with you. The newsletter informs you about the improvements we make on the basis of feedback students in the evaluations.
What is more, we hope the newsletter will be a new platform to share interesting news, announcements regarding coming activities, and other relevant information—such as introductions by alumni of the programme. 

We hope you enjoy the reading, 

Ariana Need, professor of Sociology, chair of the Education Committee and Chair of the Public Administration Department
