“Probably it is difficult to imagine a more comprehensive set of subjects which leads to the degree of Social Sciences. It feels so right for for students who are interested in both the economics, law and foreign languages, and who are seeking for interdisciplinary, modern and opening new horizons knowledge. Europe needs young experts in European affairs – these studies make it possible to become one of them!” – Žymantas Mozūraitis, Third-year student.
