The courses and modules we outline are divided into two major categories: obligatory (core) courses taught in the first, second and third semesters will give you a solid foundation in the IR discipline. Specialization courses taught in the fourth, fifth and sixth semesters will provide more focused knowledge and competence in the chosen area. Apart from these there are a number of elective and optional courses offered every year which are subject to change depending on staff availability and demand.

We offer an intense language course in one of the following languages: French, German, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Chinese or Arabic.

You can also take additional credits in a subject of interest, e.g. Statistics, to develop career-related skills or just widen your intellectual horizons.

Full-time undergraduate students need to complete modules worth at least 60 credits (ECTS) each year and 182 ECTS in total. Programme duration is three years (6 semesters).
