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. Based on the selection process organized during the first year, several GPS students will have a chance to get the second diploma in East Asian Studies at NTU during the second year.
Main aim of the Geopolitical Studies Research Centre is a study of territoriality in its many aspects. Territory as the main dimension of geopolitical thinking is probably the most important organizational principle of society. As geopolitics and political geography themselves incorporate many perspectives on the development of the world politics they are very important tool for understanding contemporary global developments.
