The subjects within the program are among others: Polish and General Contemporary History, History of Political Institutions; European Political Systems, Political Institutions of the EU, European Law; Transformation in Central and Eastern Europe, Russian Politics; Historical Politics in Europe; International Relations, Foreign Policy of Poland; Theory of Politics, Methods in Political Research, Political Thought; Sociology and Psychology of Politics, Social Movements; Political Decision-Making, Political Communication, Art of Negotiation.

Selected students can complete a part of the studies abroad thanks to the Erasmus exchange and double diploma program (with the University in Konstanz, Germany).

The graduates will be fully qualified to take up the posts of analysts and specialists in public administration, universities, think-tanks, media, national or international institutions and organizations, and companies operating across Europe and worldwide.
