Centre for European Studies at Jagiellonian University

Introduction

The Centre for European Studies at the Jagiellonian University traces its history to the founding of the Inter-Faculty ‘Unit' (Zakład) for European Studies at the Jagiellonian University in 1993. In the 1990s, this research institute offered open lectures and classes in both Polish and English, but no stand-alone degree programmes.

In 1999, the Unit was transformed into the ‘Centre' (Katedra) for European Studies, part of the Faculty of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University. In the 2000-2001 academic year, the Masters degree programmes (in both Polish and English) were launched.

In 2001, the Centre for European Studies was invited into the newly-created Faculty of International and Political Studies of the Jagiellonian University and was part of the the Institute for Regional Studies; however by 2004, the Centre grew in size, scope and popularity, ultimately elevating itself to the rank of the ‘Institute' of European Studies.

The 'Centre for European Studes' now refers to the English-language programmes based at ul. Garbarska 7a and is a part of the Institute of European Studies, now located in Przegorzały.

The undergraduate study abroad programme at the Centre for European Studies is a continuation of the School of Central and Eastern European Studies (SCEES), which although founded in 1994 as a separate inter-faculty unit, ceased to operate in 1999.

Facilities

The Centre for European Studies is based at ul. Garbarska 7a and offers excellent study facilities for students, including a Reading Room, Computer Lab and Student Lounge. The majority of classes take place at ul. Garbarska and at Auditorium Maximum.

Curriculum Development Projects

The Centre for European Studies is proud to present the curriculum development projects for which it has gained the support from the ARENA Centre for European Studies at the University of Oslo and the International Visgegrad Fund.

Research Networks

The Centre for European Studies/Institute of European Studies is an active participant in Europe-wide research networks, and we work hard to bridge the gap between teaching and research by organising guest lectures with visitors from within these networks.

RECON (Reconstituting Democracy in Europe), a five-year research project with 21 partner institutions and more than 100 participating researchers, is a project that CES faculty is very engaged in. The project covers a wide range of academic fields, from political science, sociology, linguistics, and anthropology, to information science, law and legal theory, and economics. The coordinator of RECON is ARENA Centre for European Studies at the University of Oslo, also our partner on the Europeanisation and Governance in Central and Eastern Europe programme.
