Together with the acquisition of the basic skills, abilities and personal competencies characteristic to all doctoral degrees, one of the main purposes of this program is to consolidate an inclusive and critical attitude towards the scientific results framed within current legal reality. It also provides a review of the history and current state of Public Administration, Finance and Jurisdiction in Spain, fostering critical assessment and addressing the fundamental right of access to these systems and to the due legal processes with every guarantee. All of this is achieved through the analysis of the structural problems that are identified in these issues of study. Students are thus provided with sufficient research capacity to contribute to social discussion on the main problems affecting fundamental institutions in our field, while assessing whether the structural arrangement of public authorities is well suited to the social State under the rule of law of the 21st century.
Applicants are recommended to hold licentiate or undergraduate degrees in Law, Economic Sciences, Business Sciences or Political Sciences, together with a Master’s Degree or equivalent in these branches or other crosscutting disciplines, granted either by Spanish or foreign institutions. It is also aimed at public employees holding university degrees in branches related to the contents of the Doctoral Programme.
