About the Undergraduate Programme in Political Science

Undergraduate Programme in Political Science is addressed primarily to the high school graduates. The Programme is fee-paying. The language is English.

The courses within the studies are both theoretical (aimed at developing the theoretical knowledge of political science issues) and practical, including courses preparing students to do research. The Programme consists of obligatory and optional courses (the latter enables students to develop their individual path of studies). The particular emphasis is placed on issues concerning the European integration as well as Poland and Central and Eastern Europe.

Our students apart from regular courses take part actively in the academic life, participating in different political science associations; conferences, debates and lectures of distinguished guests from all over the world invited often by our university as well as social events. Thanks to knowledge and skills developed during our studies they can win scholarships and awards within different competitions, e.g. for the best foreign students in Poland.

Graduates of Undergraduate Programme in Political Science will acquire the intellectual qualifications necessary for analysing political problems from an international perspective. Thanks to skill building activities provided during courses, they will be well trained in the art of communication, negotiation and persuasion. In order to receive a Bachelor’s degree, the graduates will be required to write the BA thesis and pass the examination.

The course lasts three years. In order to receive the Bachelor’s degree (official title, in Polish Licencjat), the graduates will be required to write a Bachelor’s thesis and pass the examination.
