It’s been a while since I’ve last posted but now I’m back and I’m trying to stick to a schedule of posting as much as I can. There are a lot of new things in my life since I’ve last posted, I’ll take one thing at a time. Today I’m going to talk about college life and what I study.
The first thing I want to tell you is that I love this college, I love what I study and I really do love all of my friends. I’ve met incredible people here!
What do I study? There’s this new program called Leadership in the Public Sector. ”Leadership is about building consensus and persuade followers, which means that a significant part of activities involve group tasks and initiatives.” You can click here to find out more details about it if you’re thinking of studying here.
One of the things I love the most about this program is that the language I study in is English, which is a really great opportunity. It’s challenging, that’s for sure! There are 6 semesters split in 3 years, as many other colleges’ programs.
The schedule. The schedule is really amazing. We have courses and we still have time to do other things during the week days. During the 1st semester of the 1st year, we have 21 hours of courses and seminars. In other words, we have 5 courses and 5 seminars + PE (this is with 0 credits, but we still have to have attendances). I normally have like two courses/seminar every day, which means that my schedule is not crowded.
Courses? Research Methods in Social Sciences, Introduction to Public Administration, Introduction to Political Science, French (everybody can choose their foreign language course. I’ve chosen French because I already study in English), Environmental Policies.
Seminars? We have a seminar for each course + Computer Skills.
*There are different courses every semester*
Most of my professors are young, but all of them are great! There are a lot of activities, chances to volunteer or simply join a club. I joined the board games club and Cinemap. Cinemap is a movie club hosted every Wednesday by two young professors. More than that, now I’m currently volunteering at Global Pound Conference Series, but I’ll tell you more about it in another post.
If you’re thinking about studying at FSPAC, feel free to ask me more questions. I’d be happy to help you.
