Bachelor in International Relations and European Studies

General

Program Description

The programme is an entry-level degree intended to orient students to the multidisciplinary field of study from theoretical and empirical perspectives. Students receive a well-rounded education and IRES sets them on the path to independent research in the professional and encouraging environment.

The programme is taught over three academic years (six semesters) and is concluded by a Bachelor’s Dissertation, under supervision from one of the faculty members. During this time-period, students are obliged to take all the allotted ‘compulsory’ courses and have the possibility to specialize in certain areas (of their interest) by selecting the ‘free-choice’ courses offered each semester.

Instruction of Foreign Languages

The Department of Foreign Languages offers IRES students language courses at various levels to complement their overall studies. Students are required to take English as a foreign language (if applicable) and in addition, they may choose from French, German, Spanish, Russian, and Czech as a second language.

MUP students may also choose elective language courses offered by the Department of Asian Studies (e.g. Chinese, Japanese).
