National University of Political Studies and Public Administration
The National School of Political Science and Public Administration (Romanian: Școala Națională de Studii Politice și Administrative din București, SNSPA) is a public University in Bucharest, Romania, founded in 1991.
SNSPA is a public institution of higher education and research (University) which was established in 1991 as a postgraduate teaching institution, incorporating in its structure the former Faculty of High Political Studies of the University of Bucharest. In 1995, SNSPA obtained the right to organize undergraduate level training in political science and public administration and communication and public relations. SNSPA is currently a public institution of higher education subordinated to the Ministry of Education, Research and Innovation.
It is organised into four faculties (Public Administration, Communication and Public Relations, Political Science, Management) and one department (International Relations and European Integration).
From its origins, in practical terms, SNSPA can be considered to be a continuation of the Ștefan Gheorghiu Academy, which provided training for the leadership of the Romanian Communist Party before the 1989 Revolution. The former party secretary from the Ștefan Gheorghiu Academy, Vasile Secares, creates in January 1990 the School of High Political Studies. Later, in spring of that year, he founds the Faculty of High Political Studies at the University of Bucharest, which in 1991 is transformed in SNSPA. Vasile Secares would be the rector of the institution from its creation in 1991 to 2004.
