International Relations is a course for these who wish to combine their thirst for knowledge with personal development while creating opportunities for an attractive future employment. What we offer is interdisciplinary studies, which is especially aimed at people interested in the world around and its shaping processes. Nowadays, globalization and integration processes require anyone participating in politics as well as in business, cultural, and social life to be familiar with international relations. Therefore, the demand for academic knowledge of the subject is increasing, which translates into good prospects for attractive employment. The following are among numerous possibilities of work available to our graduates: diplomacy, international trade, international projects, international organizations.

In order to meet the growing demand for specialists in international relations the Faculty of Political Science of Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in the 2015/2016 academic year is for the first time enrolling students for 2-year full-time MA studies in International Relations in English. Due to the fact that the entire course will be conducted in English, students will be able to master their language skills and enrich their vocabulary with specialist terminology while expanding their knowledge of international relations. The programme is designed for both Polish and foreign students who wish to probe the problem of international relations, especially in the context of Central and Eastern Europe relations.

Our development is in line with students' expectations – we are open to students' and graduates' suggestions. Answering students' needs we are planning to expand our offer by introducing language courses in Central and Eastern Europe languages.

The course has a unique content. The syllabus includes subjects on general knowledge of modern international relations as well as detailed studies of social, political, economic and cultural life with its historical background in the Central and Eastern Europe. The area has witnessed profound socio-economic changes and is rapidly gaining on meaning in modern international relations.

We do care about our graduates' future. We have started cooperation with partner universities. We are striving to provide our students with prestige diplomas from two universities.
