COURSE DESCRIPTION

CUB's Master of Arts in International Relations is a two-year English-language program training future specialists of regional and international affairs with a comprehensive understanding of world politics and international relations. It is ideal preparation for those who wish to pursue a career in public administration, international institutions, NGOs or multinational companies based or operating within Central and Eastern Europe, but it does provide a more global outlook at the same time.

The program is hosted by CUB's Institute of International Studies where students have the opportunity to choose from a selection of area specialist as well as language courses to build up a useful portfolio. In addition, the program has a multidisciplinary scope with strong IR, international legal and world economics dimensions. A solid background in the social sciences and a variety of generalist courses, such as Theories of International Relations and Comparative Foreign Policy, are offered, as well as a focus on European Union affairs and Central and Eastern Europe's interaction with the wider context of world politics and the global economy. The emphasis is on training students empowered with the analytical (interpretive, critical thinking and problem-solving) skills that enable them to use knowledge for practical purposes.

The basic aim of the program is to train specialists with a wide horizon of social sciences to a high level, so that they will be able to understand the theoretical and practical correspondences in international relations. Students acquire high-level competence in foreign languages, negotiating techniques and in the rules of protocol. Their professional aptitude gained through a comprehensive training in history, international politics, international law and other fields of social sciences enables them to analyze and synthesize complex issues, understand and make predictions about the political, legal and economic processes of international relations. Upon completing these studies the students will be armed with all the theoretical and practical knowledge that a Master’s program can provide and as an additional bonus, they would be able to locate the perspectives of the Central East European (CEE) region amid the complexities of the international system as well as interpreting the EU’s role and position in world politics and the world economy. Likewise, the qualified students would have an understanding of the development tendencies in areas out of Europe. The program offers a choice for a future career in public administration, international institutions, NGOs or multinational companies.

The program is fully in English.
