About Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences

Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences, founded in 1927, is a public university that offers a wide range of scientific fields in the areas of social and political theory and research: international and European studies, science and media, sociology, social anthropology, psychology, political science, history, social policy, public administration, and economic and regional development. Panteion University has shaped the development of the relevant scientific fields in Greece through a long and distinguished history of educational research and social contribution. 

The venture to establish a School of Political Sciences started in 1924, when Frangoudis founded the association of Educational Renaissance. In 1927, the association undertook to construct the building that was to house the School in Kallithea. In June 1930, when the money Frangoudis had managed to put together with great effort – mainly from donations from Greeks living abroad – ran out, Alexandros Pantos passed away. The then Prime Minister of Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos, as executor of Pantos’ will, granted his last wish and approved the fortune he bequeathed to the School for the completion of its construction. The inauguration ceremony took place on 18 November 1930, while in 1931, the School was renamed Panteios School of Political Sciences, in honour of Alexandros Pantos. The initial study programme had five fields: 1. Politics, 2. Law, 3. Economics, 4. Sociology, Criminology and Corrections, 5. Journalism, Geography and Philosophy.

In 1939, the School was renamed Panteion Higher Education School of Political Sciences and Public Servants, aiming to offer undergraduate and postgraduate education to public servants. In 1967, the new wing of the School and the landscaping were completed. In 1989, the School was converted into the Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences.

The first cycle of studies involves following the Undergraduate Programme (UP) that culminates in being awarded academic qualifications (a bachelor’s degree). Panteion operates nine (9) academic faculties with the equivalent number of Undergraduate Programmes. All the programmes of study at Panteion are organised on the basis of the European system of transference and accumulation of credit units – ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), so that each of the learning activities of which they are composed (lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, essays, practical training, a research dissertation etc.) may be described by rendering these into an ECTS number. One credit unit is the equivalent of 25-30 hours of work by the student. In every Undergraduate Programme 30 ECTS are attributed to each semester, whereas the total of ECTS for receiving the degree are a minimum of 240 over the duration of eight (8) semesters. Students enrol every semester by registering electronically the subjects they choose, within the dates provided in the Academic Calendar. Each year, the Course Guide of each Department is compiled for the next academic year, in the Greek and English language, which is uploaded on the Department’s site. The Course Guide consists of the titles of courses, the full name and specialisation of each instructor, credit unites, a description of the course and an analysis of the course objectives.
