The Geopolitical Studies (GPS) programme offered by Charles University  is deliberately structured to take advantage of the multidisciplinary nature of the Institute of Political Studies (IPS) and the Faculty. Students are encouraged to connect different fields of study and combine a global perspective with attention to detail and local interests. Therefore, the programme is an excellent stepping stone for both future academic and professional career.

The GPS programme is part of the double degree scheme in collaboration with National Taiwan University (NTU). It offers a limited number of places to the students of both institutions.
