All bachelor’s programmes at UMEF are strictly compatible with the Bologna Process and are thus an ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), with a minimum duration of 3 years (i.e. 6 semesters) and maximum duration of 5 years on condition of acceptance by the management. To graduate, students need to have acquired 180 ECTS credits through courses and either an internship or a dissertation. Thus, students will be easily mobile among other campuses or institutions. UMEF has two enrolments per year, in October and March. But it should be noted that UMEF has the right to modify the precise dates. To be admitted to the programme, candidates must have obtained an end of secondary school certificates, such as a Swiss maturity, French baccalaureate, British A-levels, or other diplomas judged to be equivalent.

Bachelor of Political Science

Political scientists study government at all stages in their development, the process by which political decisions are made and various matters that affect government behaviour.

The specific subfields of the discipline include the government and politics, comparative government and politics, international relations, political theory, public law, public administration, constitutional law, American foreign policy, public bureaucracy and the political process. Students majoring in the program have traditionally pursued careers in law, business, teaching, journalism, and government.

The study of Political Science is of value in that everybody needs an understanding of the political system which governs their life. More than minimal knowledge of political systems, however, is required for those who would be employed. During the course of their studies, students will examine the dynamics, structural characteristics, humanitarian issues and international political economics operating within the global community.

Moreover, they will acquire a range of analytical and practical skills offering the potential for careers in journalism, public administration and law.
