International Economic and Political Studies is a two-year English-language Master's degree program fully accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, which seeks to investigate contemporary political, economic and social issues from a multidisciplinary perspective.
Although the predominant emphasis is on approaches from economics and political science, students will also be expected to explore historical and sociological perspectives. And in a world of omnipresent media, basic techniques for the analysis of the media will also be emphasized.
Through the core courses, students will gain both the theoretical tools and the historical background to develop a deeper analysis of the world they live in, while though their elective classes (which they may choose from a
wide range of up to 50 classes per semester), they are free to develop their own specialization.
The program is deliberately structured to take advantage of the multidisciplinary nature of the Faculty, and students will be encouraged to make connections between different fields of study, learning to combine a Global perspective with attention to detail and local interests. It is an excellent stepping stone in developing an academic career in any of the Faculty's academic disciplines, as well as a valuable source of analytical skills and practical background knowledge that can be applied in professional life.
IEPS is fully accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
