Graduate Programme in Political Science

(Master)

About the programme

The Graduate Programme in Political Science is addressed to candidates who hold Bachelor’s degrees (undergraduate studies) from Poland or abroad. This is a full-time graduate Master’s programme. The language of instruction is English.

The courses within the programme are both theoretical and practical (for example, “Political Communication”, based on simulations and games).

Our students form a multicultural group from different countries and continents. We also teach diplomats from foreign embassies – a fact that proves the programme’s high quality.

 

Our students, apart from regular courses, actively take part in academic life, participating in different political science associations, conferences, debates, and lectures given by distinguished guests from all over the world, who are often invited by our university,  as well as in social events.
