PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH.

What will you learn?

The Master’s degree program in the field of International Relations and European Politics aims to develop deeper understanding of international relations and European politics acquired by the students in prior Bachelor education. Special emphasis is laid on the ability to analyse, assess, interpret, and understand theoretical aspects of examined issues with systematic critical reflection in expert activities. Focus is directed particularly toward modern theories of conflict and cooperation, theories of European integration and international political economy. A progressive curriculum in soft skills and research methods in social science prepares students for high-quality expert analytical work in practice and academia. Structured emphasis on the development of students’ analytical skills throughout the program prepares students for success on the global labor market or postgraduate study among the global academic competition.
