University of Warsaw's Graduate Programme in Political Science is addressed to candidates who hold Bachelor’s degrees (undergraduate studies) from Poland or abroad. This is a full-time graduate Master’s programme. The language of instruction is English.


Key facts

The courses within the programme are both theoretical and practical (for example, “Political Communication”, based on simulations and games).

University of Warsaw's Political Science students form a multicultural group from different countries and continents. We also teach diplomats from foreign embassies – a fact that proves the programme’s high quality.

Our students, apart from regular courses, actively take part in academic life, participating in different political science associations, conferences, debates, and lectures given by distinguished guests from all over the world, who are often invited by our university,  as well as in social events.

Graduates will acquire the intellectual qualifications necessary to analyse political problems from an international perspective. Thanks to skill-building activities provided during their classes, they will be well-trained in the art of communication, negotiation and persuasion. Particular emphasis is placed on issues concerning  European integration, as well as Poland and Eastern Europe.
