International joint master degree program PoSIG (Political Science – Integration and Governance) is joint program of nine European universities, among them also University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and its member, Faculty of Social Sciences. The PoSIG program is quite different from the joint master programs that we have known so far, since it is much more open and allows a much higher degree of flexibility and choice of study, but it is, of course, basically an payable study, where the consortium seeks to obtain an additional EU resources (Erasmus master JD, Erasmus mobility, etc.) in order to help student finance their study and also other expenses. The program is based on six political science core modules (International Relations, European Studies, Public Administration, Political Theory, Comparative Policies, Methodology). University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences is a co-holder of four modules (Public Administration, Comparative Policies, Methodology, Political Theory) and participates in the European Studies module with optional content. The program is annually announced by the University of Ljubljana and the University of Salzburg, Austria.
The study lasts for two years and brings 120 ECTS points, while students take it on two, three or four participating universities of the consortium (University of Salzburg, University of Ljubljana, Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje (FYR Macedonia), European University Tirana, University of Tirana (both Albania ), FAMA College, University of Business and Technology, Pristina (both Kosovo), Sarajevo School of Science and Technology, University of Sarajevo (both Bosnia Herzegovina)). Students who successfully complete their studies, obtain a joint degree accredited in all consortium countries.
