General

Program Description

Master in International Relations and European Studies

The programme provides students with an opportunity to explore advanced topics in international relations and European studies while honing skills related to researching, essay and reports writing, public speaking, and communication in English. While Master’s students in the IRES department often come from a formal international relations and/or European studies background, the department welcomes students from other disciplines and assists them in ‘catching up,’ ensuring that they are on par with their classmates.

The programme is taught over two academic years (4 semesters) and it is concluded by a Master’s Dissertation, under supervision from one of our faculty members. During this time-period, students are obliged to take all the allotted compulsory courses and they have the possibility to specialise in certain areas (of their interest) by selecting the ‘free-choice’ courses offered each semester.

The university also implements a PhD programme in the same specialisation.

Instruction of Foreign Languages

The Department of Foreign Languages offers IRES students language courses at various levels to complement their overall studies. Students may choose from English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, and Czech as a second language.

MUP students may also choose elective language courses offered by the Department of Asian Studies (e.g. Chinese, Japanese).
