Programme description

Coordinated by the Charles University, this programme links the fields of European politics, contemporary history and culture, economy, international relations and policymaking. The key role of the programme is to identify the challenges Europe faces today (migration, security, populism). Students spend their first semester at the Charles University in Prague, the second semester at either the Jagiellonian University in Kraków or Leiden University in. In the third and fourth semesters, the programme offers four different study tracks reflecting the diverse expertise of the Consortium members (Charles University in Prague, Jagiellonian Univerity in Kraków, Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, and Leiden University in Leiden). Each track combines various elective courses, research methods training, an internship, and language tuition with an advanced research dissertation supervised by key staff from each Partner University.
