Programme description

International and Political Studies combine knowledge in international relations, political science, economics and cultural studies. The program allows you to gain an interdisciplinary education in social sciences and the humanities. Through an interdisciplinary integration of the content of social science and humanities, whose common denominator remains policy, students will have a solid base for developing sectoral interests – in the blocks of chosen specializations. In addition, the studies are oriented towards broadening the perception of the complexity of the contemporary the world and the multidimensionality of socio-cultural phenomena and processes, and also serve to clarify the principles and mechanisms of functioning of national and international organizations and institutions dealing with broadly understood policy issues.

You will acquire:

  • knowledge about politics, international relations, political systems, society (societies), philosophical-ethical and religious systems, and contemporary communication (language and its cultural connotations);
  • knowledge and skills in the fields of politics, social behaviour and culture in the international aspects;
  • knowledge about multiculturalism, intercultural relations (including diasporas, migration processes and the situation of indigenous peoples);
  • opportunity to develop your free, independent and analytical thinking skills;
  • preparation for work in national and international (governmental and non-governmental) political, socio-economic, cultural and media institutions: embassies and ministries, international organizations, public administration bodies (self-government, state, supranational, etc.), cultural and social exchange institutions - economy, media, advertising, public relations, etc.;
  • knowledge and skills to start a career in national and international organizations (such as NATO, the EU, the UN and others).
