One of the main activities of the Faculty of Political Sciences and International Relations is the scientific research in compliance with the general principle that the university and college teaching is and should always be logically connected to the scientific research. This is the main reason why UBT College has invited to be members of its teaching staff people who could contribute to both, the teaching process and academic research.
