Akaki Tsereteli State University (GEORGIA)
In the very comparative world of ours every university should find its unique place in order to manage good quality of teaching, learning, research and administration. Akaki Tsereteli State University is one of the oldest higher education institutions in Georgia with a wide range of educational programs and research directions. The University strives to fulfill the following goals:
• Implement high-quality educational programs at each level of higher education;
• Promote the development of the vocational education system through modern vocational education programs;
• Conduct modern and actual scientific research;
• Take account of the priorities of the social, economic and cultural development of the region and the country for the educational and research activities;
• Support the inculcation of humanism, democracy, national and international values upon the society.

Due to the job market the faculty of humanities at Akaki Tsereteli State University and not only, faces challenges in terms of further employment of its graduates, as less and less Philologists, Historians, Archaeologists are employed.

Surveys have been conducted and the potential employers have been interviewed to find the ways out. Stakeholders turned out to give us good tips, among them, establishing new BA, MA, or Minor programs in European Studies and later on setting up the Centre of European Studies is viewed to open new perspectives to the students, giving them knowledge and the competences needed for the further employment at various international, national and regional institutions; to the Faculty of Humanities, attracting more and better students and enriching existing traditional fields of studies with interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches; to the researchers interested in Interdisciplinary Studies as well as European, regional and Georgian studies and their interrelation; to the economic and cultural development of Imereti region and Kutaisi as a Parliamentary city of Georgia; to the support of European values upon society.

The faculty of humanities at ATSU with the support of University of Bamberg have made significant steps to achieve the above mentioned goals as designed MA program in European Studies with the modules majoring in, on the one hand, Language, Culture and Literature and on the other hand, Economics and law. Though still there are challenges that need more human resources and international support.
