Abstract: This paper sets out to examine the history and current standing of politics and public administration education at the University of Malta, the islands' sole university. It will be argued that in the case of the discipline of politics, the greatest obstacle which has hindered its development has been the low esteem that politics as a whole has generally enjoyed among the Maltese. In respect of public administration, however, we shall see that the difficulties that this discipline has encountered, and which have inhibited its full inception into the curriculum of the university, has arisen mainly from the ambivalent attitude displayed in its regard both by governments and by the university. But, before proceeding with this discussion, the paper begins by outlining the political cultural milieu which has been a primary factor in the progress, or lack of it, that these two disciplines have made over the years.
