International Relations and European Studies
The Master’s Degree Study Programme offered by the Department of International Relations and European Studies provides students with an opportunity to explore advanced topics in international relations and European studies while honing skills related to researching, essay and report writing, public speaking and communication in English. While Master’s students in the IRES department often come from a formal international relations and/or European studies background, the department welcomes students from other disciplines and assists them in ‘catching up,’ ensuring that they are on par with their classmates.
The IRES Master’s Degree Study Programme is taught over two academic years (4 semesters) and it is concluded by a Master’s Dissertation, under supervision from one of our faculty members. During this time-period, students are obliged to take all the allotted compulsory courses and they have the possibility to specialise in certain areas (of their interest) by taking the ‘free choice’ courses offered each semester. Additionally, IRES offers its students language courses (German, French, Spanish, Russian, Czech), at various levels, to complement their overall studies.
