The European Politics and Economics is a 3-year first-cycle degree full-time program entirely conducted in English. This program is open to all international and Polish applicants. Holders of a secondary school diploma obtained in Poland, a secondary school diploma, or an IB / EB diploma obtained outside Poland are eligible for admission. Candidates must also possess knowledge of English at the B2 level confirmed by:

  • Foreign language certificate, or
  • Exam at a foreign language teaching school, or
  • Higher education diploma supplement (optional)

Candidates who do not have evidence of English language skills at the B2 level have to take an exam to prove knowledge of that language.

The European Politics and Economics program is addressed to students interested in economic and political integration, the functioning of the European Union, EU law, and the EU internal market, particularly with respect to the economy, finance, and detailed policy. The program covers the structure, competences, and activities of the European Union, its impact on Member States, and the mutual relations between them.

A unique feature of the program is that it is run jointly by two faculties at Warsaw University: the Faculty of Political Science and International Studies and the Faculty of Economics. Due to this cooperation, the program emphasizes economic premises and the consequences of European integration. This well-developed economic component clearly differentiates this program from other European studies programs offered in Poland.

Students of the European Politics and Economics program are given the opportunity to learn from distinguished Europeanists, political scientists, economists, and lawyers, both theoreticians and practitioners. The teaching staff includes lecturers who have worked in government ministries, think tanks, foreign institutions, the media, and business.

The program covers the reasons for and the course of European integration, in terms of economics, politics, institutions, and the law. Students learn about the successive stages in the process of integration, analyze historical texts (political speeches, declarations, acts of law) as well as trade databases, examine various conceptions of EU development, and forecast and interpret the opportunities, challenges, and threats the EU faces. They are also encouraged to critically evaluate the political and economic consequences of European integration and to take part in the ongoing debate over the final form of a united Europe and the Union’s territorial limits.

Students also acquire knowledge of international economics, the functioning of trade, and international capital, labor, and currency markets. They are introduced to the processes of currency and economic integration in the EU, and the impact these have on private and public entities.

Students participate in workshop-type lessons, simulations of the work of EU institutions, Oxford-style debates, and round tables. A variety of audiovisual tools are used in class (Survey Monkey, Kahoot, Playfacilte,, Prezi, Bookcreator, etc.). Students have the opportunity to study for one semester abroad. Thanks to the Erasmus + Programme and Bilateral Agreements, they can study for free all over the World (i. e. all UE countries, Mexico, USA, Brazil, Russia or India).
