DESCRIPTION OF THE MAJOR
If you’ve only kept up-to-date with the international policy so far, but you would now like to have a real influence on shaping such a policy, then the International Relations (Master’s programme) is for you. During four semesters, you will learn how to design a strategy in international policy, and carefully manage global problems, making at the same time, ethical decisions.
The Master’s programme in International Relations is also an opportunity to broaden knowledge and skills, which are required in world diplomacy. This means that the studies will present you with global opportunities. After finishing the studies, you will be able to fulfill yourself in the region of the world, which most interests you.
The International Relations programme was created on the basis of international standards. It takes into account the latest trends and changes in politics and the world economy. The studies balance the theoretical knowledge with practical skills. The classes are conducted by experts, such as the former ministers, ambassadors, and the employees of “think-tanks”. This makes the International Relations (Master’s programme) a guarantee of sound knowledge.
