Efforts to link local and regional development within the context of global development and world geopolitics, geo-economics and geo-culture led a group of political geographers to search for collaboration with experts in the field of political science and international relations thus creating an interdisciplinary field of study entitled Political and cultural geography, the only one of its kind linking study of selected geographic disciplines with political science, which includes inter alia selected chapters from the world history and fundamentals of sociology.

In this field, you can combine a keen interest in geography with studies of international relations, political science, anthropology, sociology, and history. The study will provide you with broad understanding of the political and cultural realities of world macro-regions, as well as with a comprehensive knowledge of the current functioning of the globalized world that can be applied in diplomacy, journalism, or in various organizations focused on consulting, working with immigrants and refugees, humanitarian activities, etc. You can apply for the studies in Political and Cultural Geography at the Bachelor's, Master and doctoral level.

The political and cultural geography research interest specializes in international relations, political and economic geography, geopolitics, applied sociology, sociology of ethnicity and nationalism, ethnic minorities, cultural geography, historical geography and regional studies.
