Erasmus + Curriculum Development for European Master in Political Science (EUROPS)
Erasmus + KA2 for Capacity Building in Higher Education
Erasmus + is a European Union (EU) program that financially supports a range of activities in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sports for the period 2014-2020. Erasmus + builds on the experience and success of previous EU education programs (Tempus, Erasmus Mundus, Alfa, Edulink etc) and supports international exchanges of students, academic and administrative staff, the circulation of best practices among educational institutions and strengthening the links between education and the labor market. The program is prepared by the European Commission and implemented by the Executive Agency for Education, Media and Culture (EACEA) in Brussels, National Agencies (NA) set up in each Program Country and Erasmus National Offices in Partner Countries such as Albania.
The Erasmus + project: “The development of the European Master in Political Science (Europs) curriculum” led by the University of Salzburg – Department of Political Science and Sociology, aims to develop a MA degree in Political Science accredited by all partners included in the project. The project lasts for two years beginning October 2015 and the European University of Tirana plays the role of leader of the work package 10 – Dissemination.
EuroPS has built a joint master degree in Political Science between the European Union and Western Balkans universities. The project consortium has launched a call for applications for students for the academic year 2017-2018. The program is already known as PoSIG, the Joint Master in Political Science – Integration and Governance. PoSIG offers the opportunity for Albanian students to add value to their studies with a master of European standards, which prepares them for the future challenges of the labor market and Europeanization of the country.
Accreditation of the Joint PoSIG masterclass was successfully carried out at the European level by the Austrian Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation. Thus PoSIG provides a study program that combines the best experiences of partners from the European Union and the Western Balkans and according to European higher education standards.
