The Department of Political Science and Humanities at Metropolitan University Prague was founded in 2011 and developed out of the original Department of Humanities. Through this development, we extended the number of political science courses, including the introduction of a new Master‘s Degree in Political Science, and the establishment of the Department of Media Studies.

The department focuses on developing and improving the curricula of the Bachelor’s Humanities programme and the Master’s Political Science programme. At the same time, the department wants to provide its students with a comprehensive social science education related to the Central European area, including a special focus on issues of the politics and policies of the Central European countries, and the in-depth study of contemporary Czech politics. The main objective of the department’s teaching activities is to offer the students a high-level of theoretical knowledge, as well as practical skills in their area of study, and then to create conditions for their participation in the research activities of the department, including the possibility to publish the results of their research.
