European Studies

General information

The study field of European Studies focuses on political aspects of European integration process, and thus also on further issues connected with the working of the European Union and its role in the area of international relations. The study field provides its students with detailed knowledge of the political development of EU, and of the institutional structure and decision making mechanisms within it. It deals with political systems of Member States, relations of various countries vis-a-vis the EU, the process of enlargement, and an overview of joint policies of the EC/EU.

A successful graduate is able to

  • understand the theories of European integration and correctly use the terminology of the discipline;
  • compare the role and functions of European institutions;
  • explain the position and role of Member States and non-governmental actors in the European Union development;
  • interpret current political processes within the EU, enlargement negotiations, and compare approaches that influence the articulation of national interests of Member States.

Graduate employment

Graduates of European Studies can pursue a career in a wide range of fields, particularly work in state administration and in diplomatic service, especially in international organizations and in European Union institutions in particular. Significant opportunities for graduates can be found in political representative offices; in analytical, scientific, or educational employment in think tanks and schools, and universities; at the headquarters of political parties; and in the field of journalism. This range is naturally broadened even further in combination with a second major.
